This pandemic has changes so many things. It effected the lives of many.. Students are the ones who were effected a lot. We closed our school in mid March. Since then we have been taking online classes for our preschool children once a week based on the guidelines of the State Government. Our teachers teachers are in regular contact with the students. We are sending worksheets and short videos everyday to the students to make sure they continue the learning at home. However the reach is not more than 50% as our students are from economically backward families and many cannot afford smart phone and internet. We are trying reach these children through calls. But this is not of much help as their parents are illiterates and cannot help them in studying at home. Hope everything will be normal soon.

We had to close of school in March month itself as a precuationary measure for Covid-19. Most of our preschool children parents are daily wage workers. Many of them lost their work due to LockDown. We felt that we need to support them during this time. We supported arount 50 families by providing finanical aid of Rs6000/- per family. We also provided ration bags consisting of Rice,Daal, Ragi, Salt,Oil and Chillipowder to around 400 families. We are also making sure that our children are safe physically and emotionally, by stayig in contact with them through phone and asking their well being. We are sharing simple tasks that can be done at home to make sure they continue learning.  

We are planning to continue our support for atleast  2 more months. We thank all our donors who responded positively  and stayed with us during this had time.

December is the month of Celebration and Joy. We celebrated Christmas in all our 3 preschools. We have set up a Christmas Tree with all the kids wishes.  Kids enjoyed the colouring activity. We sang Christmas Carols. All of them dressed up like Santa. All the students were happy receiving the gifts from Santa. They wished each other Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. 

Kids made new year resolution that they will clean up their place after completing the activty time everyday and put the litter in dustbin. We had fun watching "Polar Express" movie. Had cupcakes, chocolates and juice.

It's so fun and surprising to see them dance to "Jingle Bell..."

Since Winter is about to start, we distributed Winter Uniforms to all  Avasar Pre-primary students. We distributed 120 sweaters in our 3 Schools in Bangalore and Gurugram. The parents of the children were very happy and thanked us.

This month we also celebrated Children's Day in all our PrePrimary Schools. Kids had a lot of fun. They played games, sang songs, danced and had lots of fun. We distributed gifts to all children. 

Kids in our new school were able to recognize and read 1 to 20 numbers. Our PP2 students can recognize and read till 100. They are able to read 4 letter words on their own.

Thanks for your donations. Keep supporting.

Please stay tuned for our upcoming report for details about Christmas Celebration.
