RDOET IN ACTION:
RDOET (HAO India) distributed Books and literacy material to all the children in this identified area. Children were fed with special food and our team had spent good time with children, playing and even some small gifts were given as a token of celebration of International Literacy Day on 8th September 2012.
Children were very excited to receive the literacy material, and felt very happy for the good fellowship lunch and the most joyful thing children would love to receive is some gifts and candy. Children are very happy, to receive. All the parents extend their thankfulness to all our valued Donors of Globalgiving for their valuable support.
Thanking you for your kind support, without which these children would have not availed all these opportunities.
