We are pursuing Electronic and Communication engineering from Meera Bai institute of technology. During this course, we got the chance to do an internship of one month at Sanju Bhaiyaa’s Company which is called KING NETWORK. During our Internship period, we got this great opportunity to learn all about Networking. Today, we have a good knowledge in networking and it is definitely going to help us in the future. We are highly grateful to Krishna Sir who gave us his precious time and taught us a lot of valuable lessons. Also, undying gratitude to Learning By Locals because it provided us with a platform to learn different things and connect with different people who are always helping us to achieve our dreams and move forward in life.”
Mr Akshay Sharma renders his services like the computer teacher at our centre. He is also helpful in handling some of the administrative work of the NGO. He learnt Computers from the Indian Habitat Learning Centre. Being one of the most responsible and hardworking colleagues, he has always tried to help the NGO in every possible manner. He is always motivated and focused. He has been volunteering in our NGO since September 2018. We are glad to have Mr Akshay as our member. He has taught various important skills to our children like Ms-Word, Ms-Excel, Ms-PowerPoint, etc which are very much needed in today’s professional life. Students enjoyed a lot in Ms-Paint classes.
Meet 17 year old Bithika, a student & a volunteer of Learning by Locals (LBL). Previously, an introvert, Bithika, shares how 3 years of involvement with LBL has changed her into a more outgoing and confident person. She now feels more comfortable interacting with people from various backgrounds and gives credit to LBL for helping her improve her communication skills along with providing her the exposure of meeting new people. When asked why she chose to stay and be a volunteer, she stated, “We don’t have to pay to learn here so we learn and we give back. Hopefully this continues” Bhitika also learnt management skills by organizing events at LBL. One of her fondest memories is of that one time she got to perform at Kamani Auditorium at an event of Manzil, an Youth‐Led Learning Center NGO, from LBL. Bithika, who is studying in 12th grade, aspires to be Doctor in future.
