On Sunday the 20th of July we celebrated the 6th Annual Function of the Children’s Bank in conjunction with an awards ceremony for the first children to have completed a computer course at our NASSCOM centres.
We began the afternoons event with some games outside and gave the kids a chance to run around and enjoy each others company before heading in to the main hall of Gharshala School to listen to two guest speakers, Mr Mahendra Singh, a Lecturer in Gujarati at Bhavnagar University, and Suramya Mehda, a close friend of Shaishav and a member of Bal Dost.
Gifts were given to the Balsena teams that had deposited the most money in the children’s bank and had managed to save the money rather than spending it! Another gift was given for the team with the most members.
Finally, we presented certificates to the first children to finish the computer training course at our new NASSCOM centres. As part of the course they learn basic computer skills along with the Microsoft Office applications Word, Powerpoint and Excel.
