For the month of September, we had an amazing volunteer, Jared, from California. Jared is a public speaker by profession. In 3 weeks of service, he showed great enthusiasm in giving Public Speaking classes to our girls at FFLV. He also taught the girls some lessons on Personality Development. The girls learned conversational skills, the importance of communicating effectively while giving public speeches and some important techniques while communicating: – Pause, Posture, eye-contact, use of space, etc. These classes are now helping them in their day-to-day lives. While here Jared made full use of his time and also gave classes to the ex students, teachers and staff of FFLV. He shared his experience with us- “Well, not by any surprise -the girls stole my heart from day one. You show up to this school with almost 1,500 4-17 year olds in navy blue uniforms, perfectly braided hair and a smile […]
We recently organised a parent-teacher meet and awareness program at the FFLV schools and invited the parents of our school girls hoping to involve them more into their daughters’ education. To everyone’s surprise, this year we saw a 400% higher number of parents attend the event compared to the previous year. Over a 1000 parents attended the meet compared to the 250 families last year. We can see that the perception of society towards girl education is changing with every passing year. The parents are starting to take the education of their girls more seriously now. We took this opportunity to create more awareness against Child Marriage through a play performed by the girls of Sandipani Muni School.
