30 Children

3 Volunteers (Mahalakshmi, Tamilarasi and Anbu)

3 Staff (Jim, Arockiam and Chandran)

9 Districts

75 minutes programme in each district

100s of people / children were reached

900 Kilometers covered


We hired a bus and continuously travelled from place to place.  At each district we had partnered with a local voluntary organization.  Each day we went to bed by mid night.   At each place our children gave spectacular mind blowing programme which included two plays and 6 folk dances. Each programme started with traditional drum beating (Parai) followed by a play titled “Searching the New Dawn” (Our first play whichDr.C.Jim Jesudoss wrote when we formed the Children’s theatre group in December 1998) and ended with a play titled “Pain” which we produced a few years ago. Our children were appreciated by the people who have gathered. The leadership potential in our children was appreciated and it contributed so much to their self-esteem building.



Workshop on Gender Sensitization



The Workshop on Gender Sensitization was successfully completed by 12 girls and 12 boys between 21st May and 25th May 2018.  As you know we always work towards developing the

significant in our social and cultural context. Our children are inculcated with values of equality and equity. They understand social exclusion based on caste, gender and various other factors. This workshop empowered them with newer perspectives and ways and means to deal with gender based discrimination.  At the end they did take an oath to stand for gender justice.



Session on Career Guidance


A session on Career Guidance for the children from 9th to 12th standards was organised on the 29th May 2018. It was made participatory with tools that suit children.  Children set goals for the new academic year to move in the path towards their career choices. Mr.U.AbdulRahman our Field Co-ordinator, Mr.RamHariour counseller and Dr.C.Jim Jesudoss our Executive Director anchored the sessions and enabled the children to look at their dreams and their aptitudes. Children are determined to move away from the caste based occupations that their parents and forefathers were tagged on to. A range of choices were brought before them which helped them to sharpen their goals for life.
