Fun & Learning for school children
Organized by: Sanjali Nirwani
We are a group of volunteers based in Gujarat, India by the name of 'Los Voluntarios de Amdavad'. Our main goal is to make a positive contribution to the society by helping underprivileged children.
The initiative started as a self-funded meet-up group for creative people to share, discuss and executive ideas in order to serve back to the community.
We started with one municipal school working closely with the school authorities to understand the needs of the children. Our first project was to screen a movie ‘The Jungle book’ along with refreshments and gifts for all the children. This event was a success and it was a good way to form a first connect with the children.
We plan to increase the scope of our program with more learning activities in schools throughout the city.
Some of the planned activities are :
- Fun Picnic
- Upgrade from Linux to windows on all computers
- Computer skills training
- Skills workshops for Mathematics, English, Science etc
- Provide Internet in the school premises
- Improvement of school facilities
The extent of these activities will be driven by the amount of funds we can collect.
