An early Christmas gift from the Exchange students!!
November 26, 2008 §
Earlier we had put up a post regarding how Antoine and Joe had done a wonderful job organising an event for the Prayaas children where all the exchange students were involved. But now they have outdone themselves.
Joe and Antoine, having interacted with the kids, then put in a lot of effort and went to each and every exchange student and explained to them what Prayaas was trying to acheive and how limited our sources of funding were. And it was also great to see that the exchange students were also were very understanding and were very intersted in helping out however they could. Some even offered to take classes for the children.
So our dynamic duo of Antoine and Joe set out on a mission to help us as much as they could with the help of their fellow exchange students in resolving our financial issues. After around a month of hard work, we are proud to say that the donations that the exchange students have given has totalled to a whopping Rs 48,000 plus.
Our dear friends from abroad, thanks to you guys, four children get to get a proper schooling.
On behalf of everyone at Prayaas, inculding the children,
We would like to thank all the exchange students, and Antoine Binard and Joe Eliston in particular, for their efforts and their wonderful contribution to our cause.
