The flood devastation has been immense across Kerala. While families were coping with their loss and rebuilding their lives, teachers in Paravur struggled to make sense of the anganwadis that were immersed in water for 3 to 4 days. Every desk, toy, utensil and bag of provision was rendered useless by the floods. There seemed to be no way the anganwadis could welcome children back into those harrowed buildings.
word spread around and we had help pour in. Thank you Ernakulam Round Table 214 for helping get 17 anganwadis cleaned and white washed.
Thank you SilkAir Team for the toys, colouring books and crayons to fill their shelves again.
A big Thank you to the residents of Skyline Imperial Gardens for buying them cooking utensils, plates, spoons and tumblers, desks and chairs for the teachers.
Because of each one of you, more than 250 children will go back to school from October 1st.

What happens when everything in your play school has been washed away or is covered in slush?
What happens when your home has been flooded too, and there's nowhere to go while your home is cleaned and your parents get back to work?
What happens when you have nothing to play with, let alone sit on?
At The Ashoka Tree, we're working with play schools across Kerala, helping everyone get back on their feet again.
If you'd like to contribute to cleaning & white-washing, gas stoves and cooking utensils, or would like to donate anything from a notebook to a mat - get in touch with us.
We have 450 children in Paravur who need toys today.
