Visitors from the UK
On the 5th of April 2017, Sanjay colony had a school team from UK visiting Deepalaya. The entire team of boys ranged from students studying in 7th grade and up. They are a part of their school cricket team. They came to India to play friendly matches with various academies. The team visited Deepalaya to get an understanding as to how charity organizations in India work. The team was briefed about Deepalaya – and the sectors of its interventions in the four states of India. Later they visited classes and interacted with the students. They danced and sang with Deepalaya children and staff also. They were brought along by a Travel group- Earthen Experiences. This travel group has sponsored two students of class I- Sakhsi and Shweta from SCLC. Mr. Raees from Earthen Experiences met the girls and was happy to see them.
The team donated 21 cricket bats and 112 Cosco balls. Earthen Experiences gave a cheque of Rs.1500/- towards the cost of the cold drinks and biscuits served to the team. The teachers expressed their desire to work with Deepalaya, and will see to it that Hailebury School can be Deepalaya’s charity partner.
