On Sunday, 14th July, the FSL-India team along with us long term volunteers, organised a fundraising initiative for the tent school project at Bharath Mall, Mangalore.
The tent school is a self-sustainable project run by FSL-India since 2006, in the west coast of Karnataka, located in the area of Brahmavara. The tent community is composed of migrated people coming from different part of Karnataka, due to the drought effects in their zones, which bring difficulties to the agricultural work. FSL-India sustains this Community, providing basic education every day to the children and raising awareness on health and hygiene issues.
We reached the mall in the morning and we arranged our tent school stand, where our handmade paper crafts were exposed: small and big boxes as pen holders and photo frames made out of paper, by FSL-India’s long term volunteers. We had a great time all together; we could introduce to the people visiting the mall FSL-India’s tent school project and our contribution as volunteers in the organisation.
We are so happy for the opportunity of being involved in such a great initiative and we are really proud for the support received for the tent school project from the people. A big thank you to Mr Mallikarjun NH, the property manager of Bharath Mall for his generous support in allowing us to set up our stall and sell our products at the Mall.
