We are proud of our children – Parasu, Divakar, Venkatesh and Villu – who successfully finished their 10th standard exams! Venkatesh scored highest (422/500) among all of them and made the best result of WIDE Children’s Home since 2003! Wohoo! This year we have three10th standard students in our family – Subala, Arunachalam and Suresh. This year we except Subala to “beat” Venkatesh on exams, let’s see:)
Summer is over and new school year just begun! We are very proud that all our children successfully finished their exams and were promoted for higher standards. This year for the first time as WIDE Children’s Home exists we have 12th (the last) standard students in our family – our first child Durga, Pratap and Shivaraman!!!
All children are ready for new school adventures, packed with smiles, curiosity and eagerness to learn. Blessings and good luck for all of them on this journey! ❤
Arnaud and Fabrice stayed with us only two weeks (March, 2015), but they help a lot with our projects. Arnaud is an architect so he prepared detailed plan for our organic farm project and instructions how to prepare our farm according to permaculture principles. Fabrice helped to renovate the rooms: repainted the doors, decorated walls and etc. So hardworking, dedicated hearts! Thank you very much for your significant help from the bottom of our hearts! ❤
One happy Sunday we had fun drawing self-portraits! Thank you, our dear volunteers Arnaud and Fabrice, for inspiring and colorful time together! All the portraits resulted in the decoration for one of our rooms, have a look!
Today we had inspectors from “Hand in Hand India” who, collaborating with government, investigated how we follow the norms for child care. They gave us guidelines according to new norms set by the government: we have to make a shelter for our open kitchen, to arrange web-cameras for the girls’ and boys’ houses, to hire watchmen and to hire caretaker for the girls. It’s good to know recommendations, we will do our best to meet the norms!
This Sunday grown-ups were learning how to prepare raised beds for the vegetable garden. So, as you may see, our garden meditation keeps blossoming in our organic farm as well! Priya learned many practical things in Permaculture workshop in Auroville and now she is teaching our children to make it as well.
Rejoice in music and the surprise of today! Thank you, Linus and friends, for sharing Sunday afternoon with us, children had so much fun!
