Rajiv Mehra from the Rotary Club Amsterdam International and his friends visited India and both the schools of Building Blocks that the AlphaBet Club helped in opening.

They were amazed at how well maintained the schools were and how well Freesia was doing. The children had a fun time with the visitors.

We also had another visitor, Oliver Shortman, from Amsterdam, a friend of Troy Swanson, Founder of The AlphaBet Club, who helped us with videos and photographs.


The kids at Freesia celebrated the Dussera festival and had a special lunch and sweets. They were taught the meaning and importance of the festival. Dussera is celebrated in India as a festival of victory of good over evil.
