Ornaments prepared by girls during workshop
This is an ongoing project under expansion.
The month starting from October 15 was inclusive of 3 weeks Diwali ( a major Hindu festival in India) -Winter vacation. Once the actual Diwali celebrations were over, the routine changed in our girls’ centres from study classes to workshops and fun.
24 workshops on life skills across four communities and covering 102 girls were held. These were on craft and poster making as well as on nutrition , health and hygiene. Issue of availability and quality of food grains in fair price ration shops for the poor was taken up in the context of health and the right to food. 22 mothers and 3 male adults also attended the session on procedures in ration shops.
Many posters highlighting the issues of gender have emerged from the poster making workshops and girls have learned to make beads and ornaments out of old magzine papers
97 girls attended workshops on Gender and also on Peace issues through games and personal sharing and group bonding.
