Encourage & inspire the children to come to school
By Radhika Arvindam - Trustee
Sahana( name changed) is studying in the 4th standard at the Government Tamil Higher Primary School. She is very regular to school and she brings her three year old brother along with her to school since there is no one to look after him at home and takes good care of him. Her father is an auto driver and mother is working as a house maid. Sahana’s mother is struggling to make ends meet as her father is an alcoholic and harasses them very often. They stay in a very small unventilated rented house. In spite of these difficulties , Sahana is very happy to come to school. She wants to continue her education and her dream is to become a teacher and serve the society.
We continuously conduct various extracurricular programs and provide food in the school to inspire and motivate them to come to school regularly. And hence we do the following:
Make a daily protein mix which has all the vital nutrients and vitamins that the growing children need, as most of the children come to school without having breakfast. We have measured the height and weight of all the children this year to assess and analyse the impact of nutritious protein powder.
Distribute delicious morning snacks to the children to encourage them to come to school on every Saturday.Celebrate birthdays of the children at the end of each month. The children cut a huge cake in front of their friends and eat it too. Eurokids, a play school in Bangalore donated non-perishable food items to the children during Daan-utsav which is the Joy of Giving week
Well qualified yoga professionals of Sri Krishna Wellness, Yoga and Cultural Centre conduct classes to improve overall health and their concentration power . Conduct music classes every Saturday for the students of Class 5 and above. We have selected 7 students through an audition and the class lasts for more than one hour. Our regular volunteers conduct Elementary English reading, writing and spoken classes for all the children.
Interns from the Ramaiah Institute of Legal Studies taught drawing to the junior children ,took English classes for the seniors, made an inventory list of school needs and helped in gardening activities.
Distributed sandals to all the children since they get shoes from the government. Conducted a sports day program on 29th September in which all the children participated .They had a fun day.
