Swabhimaan School

Last week we did a half day of community work in a Swabhimaan school for underprivileged children. We held various educational activities, mainly around learning English, and the children were very attentive. It was a fantastic experience, though not always easy since some of the little ones had very little knowledge of English.

We had prepared little certificates with stickers which we gave away each time the groups finished an activity, the kids loved it. I think a lot of them also appreciated very much Kazu's origami stand !

We finished in the school's playground, the kids all wild about the idea of taking pictures with everyone. Needless to say this raised a lot of attention in the neighborhood, and a small crowd started gathering from the rooftops of the surrounding houses.

A great moment in the week.
