The Ashoka Tree 'play of the day' - all you need is some space and a little sunshine.
“Children have neither past nor future; they enjoy the present, which very few of us do.” ~Jean de la Bruyere
Get in touch with us to ensure more children enjoy 'the present.' #volunteer
3-year-old Dakshita could do with another doll to play with - as could the other 14 children at her anganwadi here in Kandhal, Ooty.
Our visit to Kandhal with The MOB Project was enlightening, to say the least. Here was this anganwadi in the midst of tin shacks, with children safely indoors and a teacher willing to teach them more. These are children, some of whom live in those very same tin shacks, with nothing more for entertainment other than what they see at the anganwadi.
What a lot they could do with just a couple more books, crayons and toys!
If you have books or toys to share with children in Ooty, do get in touch with us at The Ashoka Tree (for donations in Kochi) or The MOB Project (for donations in Ooty) to contribute. One smile today could be a huge grin tomorrow!
Whether it's the 'joy of giving' week or just another day in the lives of our children, The Ashoka Tree is proud to be associated with Philips India for their continued efforts throughout the year.
Every little crayon, every book and every pencil counts. Early childhood education is not something that can be taken for granted.
What are you doing this week to contribute to India's 'festival of giving'? #DaanUtsav #PhilipsIndia #JoyofGiving
