Camps had always played an important role to build relationships among the children. 92 children attended the camps this year – with lot of learning, brainstorming, fun, observations, discussions and reflections.
Feedback from the children
- We wish the camps run for 2 weeks.
- We got some ideas to tackle the problem of alcoholism
- I have got one more family and will keep in touch.
- We learnt about different adivasi culture.
- We would like to have regular monthly camps with the teachers.
VBVT would like to thank the donors who supported the camps.
