All work & no play makes Jack a dull boy!

All FF kids...
All FF kids...

All the kids have been eagerly looking forward to the completion of the academic year. It has been a hectic time for them with all their studies and additional tutions so that they may pass their final exams and be promoted to the next class. Particulary it has been a stressful time for 2 of our older boys Raju & rajesh who were sitting for their board exams. They have been studying very hard as they intend to continue their studies further. Come results days and both of them have passed...Rajesh secured 74% while Raju got 42%. We are also glad to say that most of the children passed however the not so encouraging news is that a few have been asked to discontinue for lack of apptitude. 

Rajesh & Raju are determined to continue their Pre University education and it has been a hectic time scouting for admissions for them to junior colleges and after much ado we are pleased that both have secured seats.

Well enough of the serious stuff and lets get down to the fun...the fun, joy & elation that comes from knowing that no school for 45 days. This holiday season 12 children visited their extended families for various durations from a week to a fortnight. The remaining kids have also been in constant touch with a stream of corporate volunteers who have gone out of the way to make their holiday memorable. On return of all kids from their homes the entire group has had a day out at Water World and were also able to catch up for a movie. Apart for this all the kids attended a Hole in the Wall camp...this was started by the legendary actor paul Newman. This was a time for them to socialize with other kids and also get down to some serious business of dealing with various facts of their illness. 

Overall they have enjoyed themselves and as the saying goes...all good things come to an end...they are back to school for another long grind.

We thank every donor on Global Giving who have contributed to this project and encourage one and all to keep coming back as we need your support....Cheers!
