aditya and vicky

Aditya and Vicky are with us at the foster care. Aditya's mom works in a beauty parlour the whole day and Vicky's family is in the village. They spent time making thank you cards!

on the way home

On the way home the children were full of stories they wanted to share. They told us about their wonderful picnic at the amusement park. the rides and water games and the yummy food and ice cream they had. They also told us about the hamburgers they had for breakfast and all the nice things they got to eat. Each child had a story to share and it was touching and wonderful to see and hear them.

Babli got a little car sick. She always does but we managed to make her feel better. Then we reached the foster care where Babli, Nikhil, Aditya and Vicky got off. Utpal was to go to the women centre. NIkhil and Babli went on to their homes but Vicky and Aditya will remain at the foster care as Vicky's parents have gone to the village and Aditya's mom works the whole day. She will collect him in the evenings.

After a week all the children will come back to the foster care and begin their holiday home work. They will spend week ends with their families. We also plan to take them for a few outings!

summer holidays begin

Our fantastic five are home for their summer holidays. I went to fetch them yesterday and was thrilled to see how fine they looked. Nikhil, Utpal and Babli greeted us at the gate and then we went to fetch their holiday home work!

We then set off to find Vicky. he was busy with is new pals. We collected his home work and then went on looking for Aditya.

Aditya being in a smaller class was in the hostel.

The boys showed us where they slept

It was the time to leave school and go home!

Home for summer

The children will be coming back home for their summer break on May 16th. Their holidays end on July 2nd. During their holidays they will spend extended week ends with their family but the rest of the week at the foster care as there will be loads of holiday home work to finish. We also plan to take them out a little: museums, parks, a metro ride and maybe a movie!
