            ALOK, Teaching The Underprivileged.

            ALOK was an in-school non profit cell that was built as an initiative to teach underprivileged children from ages 3-14 from the neighboring slums, by the school students on weekends. Working in this initiative, I learnt social work, managing donations and teaching basics to underprivileged children.
