The Mumbai Police has been helping citizens get around the city through its witty and amusing tweets. But this time they have won the hearts of Mumbaikars by collaborating with the Akanksha Foundation for a cause. The Mumbai Police joined forces with the non-profit organization to help a young schoolgirl switch places with the senior inspector of NM Joshi Police Station.
The idea behind the Job Switch initiative is to encourage people to come and teach in the classrooms of the foundation. The Akanksha Foundation provides high-quality education to kids from low-income communities and relies on help from volunteers to help transform the lives of these children.
This time on the job switch, Ria swapped places with Senior Inspector Ahmed Pathan. The video shows how Ria adorably goes through the works of an inspector and how Pathan familiarises himself with the children, teaching them a poem while on his teaching gig. Pathan reveals that getting the role of a teacher was very satisfying and that other professionals can also do their bit to help these underprivileged children.
Other participants of the Job Switch initiative include journalist Shereen Bhan, fitness guru Mickey Mehta and many others.
If you wish to make a difference and help the children, you can volunteer and teach for The Akanksha Foundation.
