The CIAO KIDS Foundation is proud and pleased to introduce you to the new training centre that has just opened in Hunsur, Southern India. For this very first batchpromotion, we are happy to welcome already 33 students, including 20 girls, for 3 apprenticeships learning programmes: tailoring, computing and driving. In the future, our learning training centre will have the capacity to train 80 to 100 young Adivasis per year.
A few days ago, we had the great pleasure to inaugurate the training centre in the presence of our generous donors, and some guests.
Thank you very much to all the teams in Hunsur who have done a huge and great job, thank you to the teachers and especially a huge THANK YOU to our generous donors for their support and their trust!
Following the death of his father, Anil had to leave school at the end of the 10th year and worked for 3 years as a daily farm worker. Supported by his mother, he was selected to participate in our scholarship system and was able to join our fostership home to continue his studies. At the age of 24, he brilliantly obtained a Master’s degree in Literature. He was then trained in social work and he is now one of our field coordinators for 6 months.
We are very proud because Anil is the first student supported by the Foundation to have completed university studies and then come back to work with us. In addition, he is an example to other children and to members of his community who respect and admire him.
What a wonderful news for the Ciao Kids Foundation beginning of this year!
An extracurricular childcare unit from the Nyon region found the Ciao Kids projects in India so admirable that the whole team of educators decided to make India the main theme of the school year. In this context a Bollywood show was created for the end of year party in December 2017, followed by an Indian menu, all of whose profits are donated to Ciao Kids.
THANK YOU SO MUCH to all the educators for their involvement, to the children for their enthusiasm and their beautiful decorations and to the parents for their generosity. Thanks to you, we will be able to offer materials for extra-curricular activities, such as sports and crafts, and holiday camps to the children of our fostership homes who do not have the possibility of returning home for the school holidays. Thanks for them!
