Jai Khatri, B.Tech, Dronacharya College of Engineering

Dear friends, it is my pleasure and honour to announce completion of internship of one of most energetic and dedicated Volunteer Jai Khatri who is pursuing graduation B.tech (final year) from Dronacharya collge of engineering,gurugram. In short time,Jai became part of core team of Blue pen. It was amazing to watch him organise events after events, at such shoe-string budgets. You mention any challenge and you find Jai coming up with multiple solutions. His zeal to find out solutions is rare and his passion n commitment towards welfare of street kids is simply unparallel. Very recently, Jai alongwith his another close friend Rahul basist, opened up three new centres in Uttar Pradesh and Haryana

Jai belongs to a middle class family and loves to help others . Through his junior ankita he got to know about the Blue Pen NGO & without wasting any time Jai quickly joined NGO. When asked about what motivated him,Jai explains “I love to serve my country and through bluepen I got the platform to help the poor kids & needy people .
The very motive of the NGO *”No Child Should be left behind”* inspired me to work. I found a perfect platform which I was looking for. Being a part of the Blue Pen Team I got to learn so many things from Dr. Manorama Khanna founder of Blue pen and Sir Ranjan khanna and all the team members.”

When enquired about his experience in Blue Pen, Jai elaborates,” After coming here I realized that the purpose of my life is to contribute in building a wonderful Nation by helping these children.Sometimes on festivals i always thought of poor kids that we have to celebrate festivals with these kids to spread happiness with them . After becoming the part of bluepen we celebrate festivals in form of The Dushera competition, Diwali celebration where no. Activities were conducted through which I got to know these kids are highly talented.. Should be encouraged.. For their motivation.. NGO always steps ahead and tries to do best… Recently to motivate flyover/slum kids, i decided to take these for educational trip to nehru planetrium to make them know more about our planet and solar system and many more and to make this suggestion successful rajan sir and rest whole ngo team helped me a lot . This was a best way to celebrate childrens day with them . It was my best experience.

Further narrating about impact of efforts of Team Blue Pen, Jai emphasises, “Blue pen Ngo seems to become a major and influential part of these kids lives,their outlook towards things is now changing for good..and i always support bluepen to educate these kids with innovative ideas to encourage them ”
Friends,We all need to appreciate that there is no joy greater than “joy of giving”. While we r enjoying cosy homes in this chilling winter and enjoy decent lifestyles full of warmth, there r thousands of unfortunate deprived ones on streets, who cant afford any shelter and are left with no option but to shiver whole night without blanket.

I would request all viewers to come forward and use distribution network of Blue Pen to donate New/Old items like Toys, Blankets for upcoming winters, Toys, Clothes, School Bags or other Daily utility items, for our Flyover/Slum kids/Women.

Blue Pen provides best way of celebrating Birthday/Anniversaries of your and Dear ones. It will be great if Donor himself comes and donate by hand, else Blue Pen also provides facility of picking up this stuff from your home and distribute it on your behalf.
