A New Beginning

A New Beginning....
Yes. The Aseema Trust is getting computer savvy. That is because we have run out of money for website updating etc. So here is our new blog and we have begun our self uploading and self sustenance from this minute on. I ( V.R.Devika, the managing trustee of the trust) am very happy to tell you that we have successfully completed three years of our project "Using traditional performing arts as empowering tools for vulnerable young girls at Avvai Home and Navbharath Matriculation School" as part of the South India Girl child Initiative project of World Education. We have been incredibly happy with this partnership with world education and are very happy that they are continuing the partnership for another three years to use the learning of the earlier project to work with adolescent girls on reproductive health and HIV and AIDS awareness. The major response we received for the earlier project is a call from Mrs.Rajalakshmi of Avvai Home. She said she wanted this project to continue as she saw immense benefit for the girls, most importantly for teacher trainees and so the school was willing to give a tiny amount for the sessions. Same kind of call came from Mr.Prince Gajendra Babu of Navbharath Matriculation School. He said he was willing to save on something else and give a little to continue the project in his school. If this is not a medal wonder what else is? Calls for celebration. Crowning this was a request from Avvai Home for me to become a part of its committee. Feels good.
