Saturday, March 2, 2013 was an important day! We celebrated the opening of Freesia School in Bangalore India which will educate, free of cost, 100+ children living in the Chinnappa Garden slum. Each student is given educational materials and 2 nutritious meals 6 days a week, including periodic medical check ups, all free of charge. The children are taken on excursions so they can experience restaurants, zoo, shopping centers and parks for the first time. The school will also have a Kitab Korner library so students have access to quality children’s books.
Read more about Freesia school in the Education Projects section of this website. Regular updates on both Freesia and Edelweiss school will be posted on this website. Congratulations and thanks to all ABCers, Rotary Club International Amsterdam, Wilde Ganzen and Building Blocks. Joins us at our next party to have a drink and celebrate this awesome achievement!
