For the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I’m blogging 26 days in April based on the alphabet and bringing you stories from the nonprofit Project Why.
Today, I bring you a story a beautiful young girl, who saves up each year so she can volunteer at Project Why. Real and straightforward like most of my other American friends, Emily Fox either has the secret of turning back time, or an army of clones or Ninjas or whatever, because working with her is like: Emily say, Emily do. She delivers on whatever she takes on.
Emily first came to Project Why in 2012 when she was still in her teens. She was to stay for six months in a different culture and society, but it took her no time to take to Project Why, Delhi and India. Language proved no barrier, nor did the spicy cuisine.
Before she came to Project Why she had already worked single handed with challenging adults with special needs, and in no time, she bonded with the children and staff of Project Why’s Special Section.
Emily knows where she is needed even before you ask her. She soon began helping with the volunteer programme and fundraising. While being a full time student and working nights to meet her expenses, she still finds time to revamp Project Why’s social media profile and find new funding avenues, despite being thousands of miles away, in the States.
Inspired by Project Why and their grassroots approach, Emily plans to continue working in the non-profit world. She is currently working on establishing an organization in America to aid in sending funds and volunteers to Project Why. Once she finishes her education, Emily wants to expand this organization to include outreach to teens and young adults so they too can experience Project Why.
Would you like to become a Project Why Ambassador? If you cannot make it to New Delhi, could you donate to bring a smile to a child’s face? What would you say to Emily?
