VENKAT from Dubai, who visited the school together with his family last week, wrote in his blog about their stay:
"Amar Jyoti School – Lal Tappar, Rishikesh, Uttarakand Presently 75 children are given free education
We visited a school to which we were contributing by way of stationery, toys, uniforms
Rashmikant and family runs the free school have built their house and school in the same premises to be able to manage it better. They have separate rooms upstairs for visitors and volunteers.
Rashmi Kant had invited us to stay with them at the school itself.Venkat,Neela, Venkat's brother family became one among Amar Jyoti school family by staying at Amar Jyoti school
We were happy to meet the children on the first day and were with them during their morning routine of yoga exercises, assembly with national anthem and patriotic songs. The yoga performance was really great with some very difficult ones done by them with great ease.
We Celebrated Holi with the children on 17th March 2014. We played musical chairs, antakshari, aiming a ball inside the bucket. We also played music to which they danced well and had a round of drawing. Some of them really excel in drawing. It is heartening to see these children, who would otherwise have had no opportunity to study, coming to school every day and learning.We distributed Clothes,toys and stationery to children as a part of holi celebration.
I thank all well wishers for their continuous support to: http://www.education4all.info"
Have a lovely week everyone!
With love and peace, x
