Hello again everyone!
Summer is a very busy time at Aarohi Bal Sansar (ABS) with volunteers. Our school welcomes volunteers from several backgrounds ranging from trained teachers and educationists to artists, musicians and sports professionals.
One such volunteer this summer was Gina Ali Khan. Gina is head of English Language Acquisition at the Mercedes Benz School in Pune, India. Gina spent most of her time in working with our Primary School teachers in curriculum development and lesson planning. Attached is a note from Gina about her time in ABS. Attached is also a poignant letter from Dharampal, an ABS teacher, to Gina. He talks about the importance of dedicated volunteers at ABS and how interacting with professional teachers gives teachers in a remote place like Satoli, an invaluable learning opportunity.
In all this time, we also added a new computer room to our existing facilities. Now the students have access to better machines and broadband at school. The principal too, Taraduttji, finally has a room to himself. You will see him proudly sitting in his new office in the photos attached.
I would also like to introduce our new education coordinator, Rachana. Rachana joined us in June and is responsible for managing our education interventions. Soon, she will be connecting with you all for future reporting.
As always, should you want any more information about our work, utilization of donations or have any suggestions or feedback, please do not hesitate to write to Rachana at firstname.lastname@example.org or me at email@example.com.
With much gratitude,
On behalf of everyone at Aarohi,
