Fun Activities for Children and Parents from slums

This Republic Day was celebrated with children and parents in various ways by the ECC project team. At few places, sports and drawing activities were conducted for children and fun games were organised for parents. Parents took part in the games and enjoyed a lot. They said that they had never played games or fun activities before. On some sites, story sessions were held for children and parents with the help of volunteers. One of the volunteers conducted Puppet Show at Suvidha Nisarg construction site. In Gaudara area, Magic show was organised for children and parents from Brick Kiln, Katkari slum (fisherman community), and temporary slum. After Magic show, the children played games. They were so thrilled that they didn’t want to go home. ECC Field Associates conducted the activities and talked to the parents at all the centers, with help of volunteers from corporate, colleges, and individuals.

At Nehru Nagar slum, the parents opened up after the event and started sharing their feelings. One of the parents told us, “Madam, iske pehle humse kisine itni baat nahi ki aur hamaare saath khela nahi. Aaj humein bahut achha lag raha hai, khub maja aaya. Bachche bhi bahut khush hain…” (Nobody had spoken to us so nicely before this. Nobody had played with us. We are feeling great today, we enjoyed a lot. Children are also very happy…)
