Hi all
 
Please find a report on the visit to observation home on saturday by IS KA Team.
 
Place of visit : Observation home for girls near kidwai hospital in bangalore.
 
Date and time:  9th Feb 2008 at 11.30 am
 
Volunteers visited : Emal pillai , Prathana unkalkar , Udhaya kumar , Shivanarayan , Vineet jain , Ramakrishnan, Lov jain, Jayasree. Few members represented associations like India sudar and Young jains of India.
 
Purpose of visit:
 
1. To study the functioning and infrastructure of this model and identify the areas of focus.
2. To see the utilisation level of the contributed material and get to know anything important is needed.
3. To understand the educational agenda set for the inmates here and work on improvising it.
4. To spent some quality time with the girls there and interact with them.
 
Things observed:
 
1. The infrastructure and cleanliness of this home is highly commendable. Credits to the chief supervisor here.
2. The girls are very sportive and open and can be mould to a wonderful social life with due educational and vocational training.
3. Out of 60 inmates here only 10 girls are appearing for the board exam this year.
4. There is no vocational training apart from the 4 sewing machine , training for which started very recently.
5. There are few mentally challenged inmates also. Some special counselling from a psychiatrist may bring them back close to normal life.
 
Things to be done:
 
1. A art of living course seems to be immediate requirement because the disorientation among the girls has to set right at very early stages.
2. Personal counseling to convince more students to appear for the board exam.
3. Our volunteers can mentor a few girls here as the group talks seems not to work here. We need to speak to them in person and make them realise how important is education may it be vocational or main stream.
4. Vocational training has to be arranged. Some candle making , doll making , embroidery or any kind of training will be ideal for the girls . It will engage them mentally also they shall continue to do it for a decent living after they move out from here.
5. We may also look for a psychiatrist and arrange for some counselling for the mentally challenged. Normal inmates may also require it as they have gone through adverse social impacts.
 
 
We also had a great time dancing and singing with them also Young Jains of India members distributed some snacks.
It was fun filled day with lot of smiles on the faces of the girls here.
Lets work towards the sustaining these smiles forever !
 
Thanks and regards
Jayasree

Bangalore, KA.

Dear All,

We made a casual visit to KWAB, GOM Orphange and NIHMAN Girls Home during this weekend and here is the brief update.

KWAB:
One of my colleage (Mr.Senthil Nathan) donated lunch to KWAB kids from Krishnacafe on Saturday and I joined with them. Mr. Murthy shared their new-urgent requirement for Rs. 40,000. They had to vocate their current home from Kumara park area to Sheshardripuram, due to that they need to do some minor repair at new rented place. The estimated Cost is Rs. 40,000.  Ram would visit along with a builder to  this place during this week and check the estimation.

NIHMANS Home(Girls section) and Shishu Mandir:

Ashayein Foundation scheduled there brekfast program at NIHMANS (Girls Section) home near Shishu Mandir on last sunday. Myself and Shiva joined with them. It was surprise to see more than 30 volunteers assembled there. Based on our conversation with few staff and girls over there, there is no requirements as of now. And then we visted Shishu mandir, some renovation and extention work is in progress. We had a meeting after the breakfast program, we explained about India Sudar activities and our forthcoming project with Mr. Beluragi.

Ashayein Foundation is interested to work with us. Myself ,Shiva and Prashanth are making the plan and estimate for the project with Mr. Beluragi. Vinod would arrange for a meeting Ashayein Foundation once we are ready with our estimate.

GOM Orphange:
On Sunday evening, again Myself, Shiva and Jayasree visited GOM Orphange, Shivaji Nagar to celebrate one of her friend’s birthday. It was nice evening with children at home and they had shown their dance talents. They asked us to provide few tube-lights and we gave money for 4 tubelights. They have space problem over there, they are still discussing with the chairman to get permission to extend their shelter. We may need to help them, if they get proper permission.

Actions Plans :

Ram would visit KWAB and check their estimate
Ravi, Shiva and Prashanth – make the estimate and plan for the project with Mr. Beluragi
Vinod – need to arrange for a meeting with Ashayein Foundation once the estimate and plan is ready.
