A beautiful young lady Rena recently visited our school. She came only for a few days and wanted to volunteer with the kids. She had some really fun time with the tiny tots in the KG section teaching them yoga, singing songs and playing. She also gave out really cute gifts to the children. The overall visit experience was so pleasing for her that she decided to come back in March 2017 and organise a Yoga Retreat in Vrindavan. She will also inspire people to help the school by fundraising and inspiring others to sponsor the girl education. We look forward to the group visit next year.
