Firstly, let me introduce my dear readers to AID - the NGO that we are working with. Association for India’s Development is a volunteer movement promoting sustainable, equitable and just development. But we are currently focusing on education initiative by AID. Through this initiative AID focuses on improving the Kid's reading, math and other primary skills which are supposed to be developed in school.
So, as said I am going to blog about the time I am gonna spend with them. To start with, during the kick off session today we had around 60 kids in and around Triplicane. After a long gap, I had the chance to interact with these many kids at the same time. It reminded me about the tuition we(Wisdom Club) used to take in the village near our college. The kids were from 1st to 8th standard. We conducted some games involving math and English. We also had other activities like 'Rocket' & Rain clapping, singing songs, dance, fire in the mountain and so on. The event was started with a short introduction about AID by Dr. Ravishankar Arunachalam and from IBM side, we had Prince E Nehemiah who introduced about our activities. The event was preceded by Girish Vasudevan from IBM. Selva and Venkatesh from AID helped us to get along with the kids.
That's all about today's activities guys.. I will be back with tomorrow's activity which is for Habitat! :-)
