Its raining dolls this year :)!! To much joy and excitement of our little girls, we had Svetlana visit our school again this year. She had made beautiful dolls which she distributed to the little girls from Kindergarten. The little ones were so happy. Svetlana makes dolls for UNICEF, she is from Paris and loves to bring dolls for our kids whenever she visits. Last time Svetlana visited FFLV in 2014, that time also she made hand made dolls that she had made personally to distribute to our girls. We distributed them not only at school but also to the girls living in slums nearby. We are surprised daily by the acts of love and kindness that many of you show and the effort and heart you put into giving. This is one such example. Thank you Svetlana, you have a really beautiful heart!
At Sandipani Muni School we are always trying to give the girls the best and helping them in ways they feel confident about themselves. We have been running an english reading program under the, support, guidance and inspiration of Urmila Mataji from USA. The head of the program Damini told us that for our English reading programme we have 120 kids aged 7-12 years. We are helping them enhance their English reading skills. Though this programme has been supported with volunteers from overseas but this year we didn’t get as many volunteers as expected and were in the fix as to what to do?, when we saw some of our older kids in the group started to help the younger ones. When asked if they would like to do this every day, their faces lit up and they said yes! These lovely dedicated, punctual and sincere girls has been helping since July of 2016 […]
This year we had a very interesting volunteer Eddye Lopez from Italy visit our school. He is a plumber by profession. Eddye is a very enthusiastic person who loved exploring the local sites. He along with our plumber Sanjay went around and fixed a lot of pipes in the building. The best thing about him was that though he could not speak or understand the local language he still knew his way out. Not only that Eddye would spend his evenings distributing Kichri at school to the poor families. He would make sure he was there every day. It was so wonderful to have him and his unique skill certainly helped the school a lot. Thank you Eddye for coming, we hope you come back again and we will remember you as an ever smiling volunteer 🙂
