This September 24th 2011 we were participating in a global event of 350 day along with Iyarkai, a charity network for mother earth. As a part of this program we went around(14 KM) the mountain of Arunachala in bicycles with more than 200 school children and volunteers from all around the world. Our town Assistant Commissioner of Police came and started the rally which had many other programs along as like Dramas by kids on climate change, Poem reading, Singing and so on. It was a successful event and we are very happy to have done and been part of this program which brings the awareness of saving mother Earth.
At our tuition, some times we have intensive art classes with Caroline, the children learn to use scissors, paint, brushes, water color, reusable, waste material to create something nice, we are happy to have Caroline helping us with the art classes. We have nice paintings from our children, we are thinking of making greeting cards from them. Or even sell them at some event.
On 10/10/10, Shanti Children Project organized a massive walk consisting of 1,200 children from different schools and organizations, to encourage awareness of climate change and the environment. Participating children were above the age of eleven, they painted their faces and carried banners with environmental slogans that they had written themselves. Along the way, they sung and performed simple skits of environmental protection. One example is of tribal people who were protecting a tree from being cut down by developers. The children showed much enthusiasm when it came to learning about nature, global warming, and the planet. The walk represents a joyful celebration for the children, as it signifies that they are taking a stand for their future, and for the future of our earth.
