DI Chennai Adyar Chapter updates

Dear Friends,

After the wonderful Pollachi program last weekend, this weekend was spent at Chennai by conducting weekend classes at Adyar school and visiting kaakum Karangal old age home.

We have started teaching Grammar for the children, especially for the 10 students who are really ready to move on the next level. Our friends like Sreeja, Kavitha and Poornima continue to provide special attention to the children who find it tough to move to next level. We also have letter writing exercises as a part of the classes.

Every other weekend, we conduct tests either written or some other participation way and award the kids with small prizes. Also, each class, we make the kids read 3 questions from "Dr.Kalaamai Kelungal" [ Ask questions to Dr.APJ Kalam ] book and a selected paragraph from "My experiments with truth".


It has become next home for many of our volunteers. The way the residents interact with us and affection and blessing they shower on us is amazing. With us, they come out of all the inhibition and speak freely. We have planned to visit KK next month on May 3rd and this time one hour earlier so that we can perform some program to entertain them as well.

We had Mr.Mani from Build Future India join us this weekend for KK visit. He had come along with his wife and Kid Master Sriram. Elavarasi, Ravin and our friend Anand also joined us.
