Football and Ties

For the second year, the French Embassy in India and the British School have decided to support Tara by organising a charity football tournament, out of which half the benefits comes to our children.

The teens from Tara teamed up with those of Tomorrow's Foundation, a Kolkata-based NGO who came especially to Delhi for this event.

As the big ones were kicking the ball, the smalls spent their energy on the bouncing castle to forget that, like last year ("Sirrrrrr, unfairrrrrrr"), they are still too young to compete.

In the evening, at the Award Ceremony, Jaan celebrated his 18th birthday and improvised in French a beautiful speech on what it is to become an adult. Shyamu, Suraj and Rakesh also took the mike to speak in English about their life at Tara.

In the audience, we could feel the dramatic tension, as well as an impressive silence... and for the Tara boys, the pride to see their big brothers on stage, delivering speeches likes real pros!
