It is always wonderful to welcome old friends and supporters from different parts of the world, at Asha. Like every year, we were glad to welcome Asha supporter, David Briggs and his team of teachers from the UK.
The team consisted of 14 people from Kibworth Primary School, Parkland Primary, Mowmacre Hill Primary, Clifton and Discovery Schools Academy Trust. They volunteered for a week at Asha’s Seelampur centre from 17 October 2016.
During their stay, they absolutely captivated the Children and Youth of the slum colony with their unique story-telling styles, conducting numerous educational activities, art and craft and face-painting for the children as well as orchestrated musical programmes. They also taught English to Asha students at the centre and were enthralled by the empowering stories of the Women’s Association.
The team also visited the new Seelampur area – the tiny slum situated under the massive metro line and on the banks of river Yamuna and interacted with the community members especially the people who are getting relief from Asha.
We are glad to have a long-standing friendship with such generous people. Thank you, team!
Here are a few glimpses of their time at Asha…
