VILLAGE CLASSROOMS BY FFLV FOR MORE THAN 400 GIRLS IN 11 LOCATIONS

The recent initiative that FFLV has taken in order to provide schooling to their primary grades girls through village classrooms is proving to be a success story.   So far, we have 11 locations where classes are being conducted on a regular basis with a total of more than 400 kids who have joined the classrooms. We also have further plans to expand these classrooms to more locations in the upcoming weeks.   We have a team of around 35 student teachers to whom we provide financial support for taking the time and helping us to teach the young students.

A braid for Life

Denise Baschirotto, a young Italian therapist, is deeply attracted to Indian philosophy and its culture. Having a great desire to help Indian women, she was inspired and share the idea to create a beautiful handmade: a bracelet/anklet made with pieces of used sarees cloth and a holy thread. Attached to it is a small bell calling attention to this project called “A Braid for Life”. These beautiful bracelets were made by FFLV girls during this period of lockdown and were sent to Italy by courier. For every donation that goes towards any FFLV projects in Italy, the donor will receive this special item which signifies meaning and hope. We appreciate the effort and support of Braid For Life for the emergency medical blog case and the Rations Distribution campaign at FFLV. If you wish to start a similar project in your country please write to connect@fflv.org. or WhatsApp to +91 […]

The COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the primary education of children since the Government shutdown and due to the implementation of safety measures, schools have not reopened. As an alternative, FFLV has come up with an idea of home schools for primary grade FFLV students, for whom online classes would have been too difficult if not impossible. Not only can we provide these students with the essential learning but also reconnect with them and know they are safe and well. Currently, FFLV home classes are running in 11 different locations at nearby villages, conducted by FFLV senior grade students playing a role as teachers and having an opportunity to develop their teaching skills and earning some money as well. We have more than 400 students from 1st to 5th grade and more than 35 “teachers”. Many more teaching locations will be organized in the coming weeks. Each teacher is being […]
