Everyone has been asking, what is your rotary moment? I didn’t know what to give as an answer or what a rotary moment truly feels like. After coming to Nepal, I finally found my rotary moment.
During this trip we have been to about 4-5 orphanages, all filled with smiling children. As we approached St. Xaviers Social Service Centre, I wasn’t aware the impacts it would have on me. We walked slowly up a slight incline to a building where 45 boys, all orphans came rushing in to meet us. We handed out coloring books, pencils, paper, crayons etc. Their faces lit up and their eyes grew big.
I knew at this moment I was doing something amazing. I sat with a group of younger boys. They could not stop thanking me, showing me what they colored and of course smiling. It made me feel so good being their, spending time, and talking with them.
Tulsi explained to all the boy, they can do anything they put their heart to. When they all yelled out “I can do it” that’s when I knew we have made an impact, we have made faces smile and we have inspired the youth. This was my rotary moment.
