Independence Day – No Child Should Get Left Behind

This Independence Day, 15th of August 2016, The Kahani Project got along with Door Step School to take the message of continuous education and schooling for all kids. Ajay Dasgupta and Chetan Vohra from The Kahani Project, along with Ankita and team from Door Step School engaged the parents and children  through storytelling, dance, and songs. At the end of the session, children promised the team of going to school everyday. This event was organized for communities in Dighi, Alandi Road, Pune. Here are some snapshots of the activities –

What do you use to hear stories – your ears and not the mouth.
