Ticino India 2006
Intercultural Exchange between Ticino (Switzerland) and India (school of Ramachiwadi)
Project completed in December 2006
Together with Emanuela, the children spent several school-free afternoons preparing hand-crafted gifts to be sold during the local Christmas-market. The proceeds were used to buy drawing material for 16 children and several games such as badminton, cricket, fresbees, skipping ropes, etc.
Shortly thereafter, our team members traveled to India and delivered the gifts to the schoolchildren of Ramachivadi. A whole day of activities was organized with the remainder of the funds, which included renting the equipment to project a children’s movie, snacks during the day and lots of group activities to learn using the new games.
To conculde the day, a dinner was organized for all of the 116 inhabitants (menu chosen and cooked by the villagers). It is an unforgettable day for many of us!
Everybody at work!
