What a fantastic beginning to what seems like a year that’s begun before we literally said
Here’s to getting together more, #volunteering more, enjoying what we do #evenmore #goa #sunshine#workfamily #ngoindia
what a year it's been!
What a year it’s been!
From the end of lockdowns to getting children back in school.
2022 has taught us so much - #resilience #power #faithinhumanity #belief in #better #kindness #gratitude and so much more.
To everyone who’s contributed to #spreadingmoresmiles , you know who you are, #thankyou for #beingyou . #2023 #BringItOn !
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without so many of these angels who make what we do worthwhile.
Here’s a HUGE shoutout to @tinathomas2007 and everyone who contributed gifts for our children in Pune & Kochi - whether we talk to you every day, once a year or once in three years, you are worth so much more than the world knows!

World Disability Day - with volunteers from The Ashoka Tree & IOCL

GIVING TUESDAY - AND EVERYDAY!
#givingtuesday has never felt this good.
May the #joyofgiving stay through this holiday season and after - turning rough (sometimes swampy) ground into a well-covered exercise-mat area for our children to continue #silambam and #martialarts #lessons is the perfect way to end the #penultimate month of the year!
We’re grateful to be able to continue doing what we do - day after day #anothermonthtogo Let’s end this year better than it began! #ngoindia#sharing #thanksgiving #gratitude
WE ARE THE DREAMERS
We are the #dreamers - walking in line for an art festival #kalaivizha2022inauguration, has never been more fun.
teacher's day 2022
Everything we learn is not necessarily from a text book - here’s to every person we’ve met on this journey called life who’s taught us something new, who’s made us who we are today, who keeps us striving to be better.

It's getting to that time of the year again here in Kerala, where there's a definite buzz in the air, flowers and fruits start getting more abundant (and more expensive by the looks of it), and family starts making travel plans to get home.
At The Ashoka Tree, we're getting together to collect clothes for women and children to be distributed in the high ranges, in Idukki district, for families that might otherwise not be able to afford new clothes for the festive season.
Get in touch with us to know more.
Madurai - let's get reading!
Here's to another "Athi-Sundar Library" in the temple town of Madurai in Tamil Nadu.
Let's get reading everyone!
icds supervisor training
"If you think education is expensive, try estimating the cost of ignorance."
This past week has been spent with continuing education and training for supervisors from the Integrated Child Development Scheme in South India.
We're grateful to be able to continue learning with people who inspire us to be better every day.
