Five Day Summer Program for Teenage Village Girls

For the month of May, (summer school holiday time in India) we organised a five day camp for the teenage girls who have been attending our awareness programs. Topics covered included education, career counseling, moral life, abortions, feoticide and infanticide. Special speakers came to cover some of these topics. Talks, as usual, were interspersed with lots of games, competitions and fun activitites. The first day, about 60 girls attended, the second day, 90 and the third day, over 100. Many more girls wanted to attend from villages further away, but were unable to because of transport difficulties, so next time we will look into the possibilities of organising transportation for them.

Education charities can potentially play a vital role in the country’s development as educated children are the key to a bright future.

Help Foundation should come forward for the needy … .. . !!!!

India Asha is an excellent, democratic social network where ideas that are not so widely accepted are as welcome as the conventional ones. People active in India Asha meet up to know better about the others and their interests & initiatives. May be this will help new tie-ups, refinement of ideas that would result in greater social impact !

Good Work !!! Keep it Up …........
