It takes all kinds to make an endeavour like Swapaksh tick. Volunteers who generously donate the time required. Sponsors who generously donate the means required. Community leaders who provide on-the-ground support. And a whole lot of luck.
How fortunate are we that we have been blessed with all of the above! With the efforts of all these people, we have now secured a better school room. The new premises was inaugurated to great fanfare this past Sunday.
The kids turned up in their best clothes, looking so colourful and happy and excited about their new school and their performances.
Parents and sponsors arrived to lend an ear and show their support.
After a short prayer, the kids showcased what they had learnt over the last few months.
We distributed new uniforms and water bottles to the eagerly waiting kids.
And just look how smart they looked in their uniforms the next day morning!
Last, but not the least – our team of volunteers and teachers who worked very hard to make all this happen.
