The Cranes continue to fly …at the Children’s Book Fest 2012, Goa, India

As a part of the Children’s Book Fest that was held on the 15th and 16th of December 2012, in Goa. We were invited to conduct a story-telling session and a workshop.

As we still believe that there are many many more children that we need to reach out with the story of Sadako Sasaki, and her innocent cry for peace in the world. We decided to take this opportunity to tell her story and have some more T-shirts painted for the children back in Japan.

We had children from our support home Care and Compassion, Panjim, children from the group Happy Karma Now, in Calangute, and children from the Mobile Outreach Program of Bookworm, Goa.
The 16th of December session began with our workshops, and we had a full audience. The entire center stage was full of children. Katha, our founder read the story out to the children, and we also explained it for some of them in Hindi.

The stage was already set for the T-shirt Painting workshops, as the walk-in to the stage were already flagged with the old painted T-shirts from the previous workshops, so when the children we asked to paint, they had a direction.

To make it easier for the younger ones, we gave them cut-outs of the crane to make it easier. The older children came up with some really nice messages for their T-shirts.

We thank Ms Sujata Noronha and the team of Bookworm for inviting us for this event. It was a larger platform for us to tell our story and get support for the cause of the 1000 Crane Project. Also, thanks to Sophie, Sarika and Davide, our volunteers who were there to help and support us.
The 1000 Crane Project is now moving to its second phase, where we are trying to connect with a children’s organization in Japan, who we can send these T-shirts and also a sponsor who will help us ship the T-shirts to Japan.
