A simple slate, chalk, a few crayons and a coloring book make all the difference.
A huge shout out to Chinmaya Vidyalaya, Virugambakkam for their generous donation towards our stationery donation drive.
We're proud to be associated with all the children who have contributed to spreading more smiles across the city!
Here is to spreading more smiles across Chennai!
Imagine you were in a room with just one window all day.
Imagine temperatures indoors kept to a steady average in the mid to late 30 degrees centigrade.
Imagine being indoors without a fan.
The reality, in some of the play-schools we work with in Chennai, is that children here spend all day indoors without a single fan.
They don't need to imagine what it's like here - they live it.
Every single day.
Get in touch with us at The Ashoka Tree if you'd like to contribute just one fan.
Get in touch with us if you'd like to do more - give The Ashoka Tree Chennai a call at +919176162319.
A glimpse into our Story Telling workshops at The Ashoka Tree, Chennai.
This week, we taught our children how to count to 10 with the story of 'The Thirsty Crow'.
Akansha Rathi taught our children here what it meant to sound like a crow, talk like a crow, and practically fly like a crow! It helped of course that she dressed in black to get the look right too!
The Ashoka Tree is proud to have volunteers who make a difference to each day. Volunteers who know what it means to have one child learn to count. Volunteers who spread more smiles all the time.
Make your story count too. Volunteer some time with us at The Ashoka Tree www.theashokatree.org/volunteer.html
The Ashoka Tree is a Registered Charitable Trust that works with the underprivileged. We work with special schools, orphanages, play schools & hospitals - spreading smiles where there are none.
