These are the certificates/recommendation letters for the community service project in the slums and the tour of the cancer institute. Svecha has written and signed these and given me the certificates. They will hopefully help me immensely with my college applications and resumes.


This is to validate that Chandini Reddi volunteered at the Svecha Community Service visit to the slums on Sunday July 4, 2010 in Hyderabad, Andra Pradesh India. She was very involved in the one-hour program and interacted with all of the children through a variety of games and activities. She was excellent with the children, and they were all very affectionate and loving towards her. She went out of her way to ensure that she met and interacted with every one of the children. It was apparent that this experience was something she thoroughly enjoyed. She was humbled by the circumstances and environment she observed in the slums and emerged from the experience with a new found perspective and sense of satisfaction. The love and care she demonstrated towards the children was evident as they were pleading with her not to leave, and asking her to return to see them. Overall, she gained a lot from the experience and the compassion and love she showed towards the children was greatly appreciated.


This is to validate that Chandini Reddi visited the Nandamuri Tharakarama Indo-American cancer institute on July 7, 2010 in Hyderabad, Andra Pradesh, India. She was given an extensive tour of the institute. She saw the various machines and technology utilized in order to detect cancerous regions of the body, the patients suffering from Intensity Modulated Radiotherapy and Chemotherapy, the lab in which the malignant tumors were found, as well as the blood bank, and Out Patient Department. It was apparent that she was fascinated and interested by each facet of the institute, and she asked several questions and showed a great interest in the science of cancer, the patients, and the institute. She gained a lot from this experience because she was able to actually interact with the patients suffering from Chemotherapy. She was very curious about the causes of cancer and showed that she was interested in possibly researching the causes of cancer and hopefully finding a cure someday. Overall, the experience she gained a lot of imperative knowledge through this tour, and the interest and passion she showed for the patients and the science behind cancer was impressive.
