BEAT OF THE STREET
The musical instruments handed over to the children made a tremendous change in their lives. The children who would've spend their time idly are now engaged in productive activities. It has also made a significant impact in the lives of children as well as their families. They learned how to perform the musical instruments. Now, they are performing in various avenues such as public functions, school programmes, community celebrations and many more. This also helps them earn an income which in turn supports their family.
This project helps children to enhance their skills and inspires them to be self- sufficient. This would mould their future and help them reach heights rather than following the path of their older generation. This way the community would grow and develop.
The Childline Trivandrum conducted a campaign for prevention of covid 19 while children go to schools.The campaign was held in the city of Trivandrum. Our Chendamelam crew was given the opportunity to showcase their abilities to the general public. The chendamelam and the children caught the public's attention and praise. The campaign's biggest attraction was the children's excellent performance. The children were excited to be a part of the childline promotion as well. Throughout the campaign, the crew delivered an outstanding performance. Our chendamelam team was continually encouraging additional slum children to join and practise the chendamelam. As a result, we intend to increase the number of children who practise chendamelam.
Since the outbreak of pandemic in Kerala, the situation and survival of the families are continously fluctuating according to the rise in case of Covid 19. The government is imposing restrictions over the public as per the increasing cases. evenat the midst of pandemic Don Bosco Veedu Society was able to gift musical instruments for the potential children across the slum so as to trian them in musical instruments and make them capable of handling those instruments.
Due to sudden outbreak and continous rise in number of cases of Covid, the families of these children were in trouble as they were facing the risk of getting infected by the pandemic. Don Bosco Veedu Society managed to mobilise the funds from the project toprovide their families a home prevention kit which included Sanitisers, soap mask, glucose, gloves, vitamin tablets, disinfectant liquids, oxymeters, thermometers and vapourisers.
