I am happy to share that we recently introduced organic farming at our Community Centre. A portion of funds will be utilized for scaling organic farming full time in three villages that we are working with. Simultaneously children also learnt about key skills like Empathy and Problem Solving in the process.

Attached a few pictures below.

Thank you once again for all your support throughout the year. With these funds, we plan to setup more Innovation and Passion labs in the new villages we have started working with. Next week we are rolling out fellowships in 5 villages and these funds will help us in supporting the Science and Innovation Program.

Meanwhile, sharing a few pictures from Christmas project.

This Christmas, our kids decided to become Santa Claus for their parents. The first problem in this was finding socks without spending any money. The kids then began stitching hand-socks in their stitching sessions with our fellows.
The next big challenge was finding the gifts which convey gratitude and help kids empathize with their parents and community. The kids then decided to design poetry diaries for their parents. They began reading a lot of poems by several rural authors from different districts of Maharashtra and hand-picked ten poems they liked.
Now the kids started writing these poems, drew illustrations to make the poems visually appealing and finally designed small diaries. Today, the kids kept these handmade socks in their homes as a surprise for the parents.
A lot of parents said that this is the first time their kids had thought of this and they loved the poems.

Hi everyone,
It's being long I have written about what's happening on ground. While last couple of months was new beginning for us, we also decided to spend 80 percent of our time as a team on ground with children and their families. Getting to know their journey, day to day life and building strong relationships was our prime focus.

I am excited to share three highlights that captures our journey best:
1. We have setup our first low cost Innovation and Passion lab in Laxmiwadi. This lab is a space full of tools, books, trash and everyday resources with which children learn science, innovation, stitching, crafts, literature and much more. In the first month, children made a curd churning machine using trash and a motor, a solar cooker and are studying about agrarian crisis by spending time with farmers.

2. Expanding fellowship to more villages: We started with Kapurwadi in August and are studying two more villages this week. With every new fellowship that we start, we are learning from our processes and constantly improvising our intervention. I will share more on this soon.

3. Building team on ground: This month has been a fresh start as a team for us. We are building team on ground and are onboarding a team of female staff from tier 2 and tier 3 cities and towns. The purpose is also to create a team that challenges status quo and inspires many more females from small towns and cities to be the change.

I want to thank you once again for believing in what we do. We have some this far with your support and I feel we can do much more in the coming months.
