primary and secondary sections.
largest group of energetic young minds, around 125 of them....Our Tara
volunteers Nancy, Nisha and Soraiya had the arduous task of coordinating the
event...The principal Mr. Eric Fernandes and his staff were cooperative and helped
when they could...
children couldn’t wait to begin paintings after the
presentation..Once we began shouts for more colours were heard...They were
keen on painting messages of peace and love from Goa...They had a zillion
questions like “Miss, can I paint a Goan scenery so the children know what Goa looks
like” to “Are the children in Japan really going to wear our T-shirts”.....a
lot of hidden talent came to the fore which was displayed in the t-shirts that
children had a blast and As always our programmes ended on a high....
Dependable Nancy perfect in her arrangement with the
materials, t-shirts and paints but then our camera stops working...Nisha to the rescue with her
