Dear donors and supporters
We are happy to share with you weekly update on Under The Tree.
You would be happy to note that we noticed a big change in the mindset of these children and their parents. For the first time, some children didn't go to their native places during this holi festival break and stayed back for studies.

Achievements 
This week children learnt the art of making colourful paper bags.
Children  learning computers achieved their first milestone of drawing a face in MS-paint. They also learnt how to select, copy, paste and manage workspace.

Highlights
Some employees from Tata Consultancy Services visited the school and spent time with children. They donated some stationary as well.
We are grateful for the support.

Plan Ahead
We are planning to buy some folding stools and related stuff for making covered sitting arrangements for the computer class. Since the school is literally under the tree, children cannot see laptop screens well in bright light. Also, there is a lot of dust in the area that prevents comfortable sitting with laptops. Makeshift covered sitting area will help them see and work better.


We are thankful to all our donors and supporters for their continuous support to the initiative. With your support, we resolve to work further in this direction.
