On 26th May, 2018 we had our Annual Trustee meeting. After the introduction of Shaishav team and Trustees, Balsena coordinator presented the annual reporting for the academic year 2017-18 and also presented the Annual plan for the academic year 2018-19. Towards the end of the presentations, trustees gave suggestions on how to make the presentations more effectively, strategies to evaluate maximum impact, and left us with few questions around our annual planning.
June, 2018 is the beginning of the academic year. We saw bundle of joy and enthusiasm among children as we started different activities in their respective areas. Through our regular Balsena activities, we reached about 745 children by the end of 30th June, 2018. Special programme like "Anti child labour day" on 12th June, was conducted to create an awareness among masses about the critical issue of "child labour". 124 Balsena children and many more children from outside joined the campaign.
In the month of July, 2018 apart from the regular point activities, we did Kishor and Kishori mandal activities at each area points. These activities are focused on Adolescent children to make them aware of the Physical, Mental and Emotional changes within them and also to increase their capacity in each of these fronts. The intial activities were "Parichay Sangeet" and "Suraksha Kavach" in which children will introduce themselves by sharing their names and qualities followed by each child sharing positive quality of one another. 280 boys and 209 girls participated in these activities.
