4th anniversary at Tara Tots

The afternoon of January 16th saw the fourth anniversary of Tara Tots. The volunteers who have been with us for many years were invited to celebrate this happy event with us.

We began an afternoon full of activities by watching a set of dances and energetic songs from the children. In particular, they played us a beautiful Indian song based on the theme of hope ("Ashaye" in Hindi).

This was followed by a delicious snack prepared with love by our Tots and a presentation of the activities they take part in with our various volunteers.
They were very proud to show us their work! The volunteers and as well as members of the staff received gifts to show them our gratitude.

Our former Tots who today are now Tara Girls, Deepika, Jyoti, Vansheeka and Noorie, moved us with a speech about their first memories as Tots. At that time, they told us, they nicknamed Pascal "Billi Jeise Aakh" which means "cat eyes" because of his large, clear blue eyes, which are so rare in India.

This anniversary was the first for some of our Tots, who arrived at Tara only a few months ago: Kamal, Simran, Sarthak and Charan.
Their integration into Tara is going well indeed - they already feel at home! Kamal will soon move to Tara Girls, where she already spends a lot of time in order to get used to it there.
Sarthak, who hardly spoke when he arrived, expresses himself much more freely now!
He says, almost systematically, "Thank you" and "hello", always accompanied by an enormous smile!

To top off this anniversary afternoon, the nannies, the cook and the night staff at Tara Tots prepared a magnificent traditional dance, which really impressed us all!

It’s already 4 years since we started the adventure at Tots, this fantastic project is a success thanks to all of you: volunteers & employees, sponsors, business and foundation partners. So, It is with great emotion, that we close 2015 and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year to blow out the 5th anniversary candle!

nice post:The pre-primary years at Sarvottam are thrilling and most enlightening. The 'Kinder Castle' at Sarvottam is a world of awesome learning. We believe that every child is blessed with innate skills and we find reasons to celebrate ‘The Genius’ in each child.see more
