We teach Indian students from the nearby villages that surround the campus science and we use the laboratory facilities on campus to show them experiments and allow them to perform it, this fulfill the requirement of lab work in their science syllabus. Communication is one of the many skills I develop from this activity, because of the language barrier between me and the students I teach, I try to solve the problem by using sign language, pointing at stuff and using very simple English words.

Encouraging the students I teach is very important as they will feel elated if they felt that what they are doing is right so a simple "Good job" can sometime be like giving candy to a little kid. When I see that my work is making an impact I feel proud of myself and this motivates me to do more and to give passionately.

I organize a lot of entertaining activities to keep the interest of the members and motivate them to come regularly.
