The End of the Beginning.

As we come to the end of an era here in Kerala, we can look back on some fond memories of the last 10 months. In July of 2011, we were given a group of 23 orphanage boys and girls, from the age of 6-13 years. All from the State of Manipur (North-East of India) they were caught in a child labour racket. They were not allowed to be put into the school system in Kerala due to insufficient paper work. So the job of providing these kids with an education was paramount. 

Now as we have come into the school holidays we have been able to see the progress in their growth and development over the last 10 months. This has come through watching the kids pull on their first ever sports uniform and football boots, giving them a real sense of being a team, and giving them ownership, something to take care of. Have them reading story books, learning from encyclopedia’s, getting creative with some extraordinary art lessons and seeing them develop an insane love for stickers, something they had never seen before coming here.

There still is no information on what’s happening with the kids at this point. They will need to go to school soon, so fees will need to be paid, books and uniforms purchased. This can only be made possible with the help of donations. We have made a great start, but it is only the beginning of their journey, you can join us on being a part of their journey and future. All this has only been possible through the help of donors both in country and those of you at home.
