Preparing For Our Trip!

by Gyanada Foundation on December 21, 2015

This December we are excited to be traveling back to India and visiting Kolkata, Ranchi, Mumbai and Chennai! From the very start of the foundation, we knew that field work was important to us and we wanted to remain invested in the most important parts of our work. We want to continue to build genuine and lasting relationships with our field partners, field workers, the children supported by the foundation and their families as well. India is a large country and some of the cities we work in are far apart, so at times it can be a little difficult being able to spend time in all of the cities we operate in but we truly believe in building lasting trust and communication and have committed ourselves to doing what it takes to have some quality “face time” with our network.

For this trip we have a number of activities lined up and are looking forward to spending time in the country we love with the girls that are supported by the Gyanada Foundation. For this visit our activities will include a craft session for Kolkata kids with our Partner, Calcutta Rescue, an Electronics Bootcamp in Ranchi and a stop in Mumbai to visit Mulund children. In Kolkata we will meet the girls in the centre near Burrabazar run. We will be spending a little more time in Ranchi and are thrilled to be hosting our first ever Gyanada Electronics Boot Camp. The idea of the Electronics Boot Camp was inspired by our goal of increasing access to computers, internet and basic technology. We know from our experiences working with this community that our children are extremely bright and deserve access to the same opportunities that their peers have.
