Dear Friends, Happy Holi- on this auspicious day, I would like to mention about another committed and dedicated volunteer of Team Blue Pen – Abdul Quduush. He has completed his Graduation from Delhi University and Draughtsman Course from BTC PUSA. His dream is to open his own interior designing company one day.. Ameen!.
Discussing about his family background, Abdul says, ” I belong to a middle class family. My father works in an export company. He needs to work very hard to make both ends meet.
When asked about his association with Blue Pen, Abdul explains, “Through Mohammed Bhaiya, I got to know about the NGO BLUE PEN. All my childhood I believed that poverty is the most terrible thing in humans life. Children are the potential resources of any country. So I joined Blue Pen. It’s almost about a year with the Blue Pen. The journey has been really amazing I got to learn so many things from Mam Dr Manorama Khanna and the entire team.”
When enquired about his experience with Flyover/Slum kids of Blue Pen, eyes of Abdul lit up, “I am extremely happy to be with these children. It makes me realize the abundance of love and care they require from people like us. I consider them as my own. It’s my message for everyone try spending some time here, you will realize that you are not just helping thse underprivileged children but yourself too. Blue pen doing a noble job and I am proud to be a part of Blue Pen.”
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.
