Summer Events in SANTI Building
By Ashok Dandpat - Project Leader
We are having a great time in summer with many events in our SANTI building. We are using this building to organize various events as outlined here.
We have started a new batch of summer training classes with 16 students. They are learning to make Indian ladies dresses.
Record Keeping training was provided by SANTI to Women Self Help Group members of Barupara Ward No.13 of Rajgangpur.
In morning, children are starting the day with an inspirational song and doing yoga.
Few SANTI children have shown interest to learn to sew in summer break. So, they are learning to sew clothing.
Thank you for your continued support. The construction projects are on hold. We are waiting for a threshold of funds to generate and then resume the work.

My nostalgic feeling and visit to SANTI
By Ashok Dandpat - Project Leader
I am lucky to personally meet SANTI Children. It is an amazing feeling to see what we can physically achieve and build back India in a rural place through our regular contribution. It is powerful to see what children are doing few mentioned here.
Yoga – In morning, children are starting with an inspirational prayer and doing yoga. Performing Yoga and meditation at this age will instill a powerful mind and a fit body. We observed happiness and smile on their face after Yoga practices. What a blissful routine, we wish we can do in our schedule.
Dance – Mrs. Niharika Mishra is teaching dance class to children. They are learning dances on few songs which will be performed in a future event. Dancing together helped them to build a strong bond.
New Children - We have included seven (7) new children in our SANTI Child Care Center and our current children headcount is 32. They are already scheduled to join in school. New students Nandita, Muskan and Sujit will join in grade 6, Kartik in Grade 4, Srikant in Grade 2 and Erlen and Prince in Grade 1.
Sewing – Few children showed interest to learn to sew in summer break. So, they are learning to sew clothing. We believe they will be self-sustained in future.
It feels great to see, together what we have built so far and changed the life of orphan/underprivilege children. It is truly a nostalgic feeling for me to see them in person and wish you can also make a trip to see the fruits of your contribution.
