Komal, Kamla and Santosh in France
This month three of our students from Dantewada and Bijapur, Komal, Kamla and Santosh visited France to participate in a 15 day long summer camp organized by Sport dans la Ville, Lyon. Ms. Kavisha Dikshit, Project Leader of our Dishari project accompanied the children.
Since last three years we have been organizing sports exchange programme with a focus on using football as a medium to develop personalities of under privileged children. Sports Dans la Ville, France shares the same philosophy and partners with us for the same cause. Every year a group of under privileged children come from France and participate in friendly football matches with their counterparts from Kolkata and Dantewada. They also participate in various cultural activities.
Similarly, every summer TF children go to France to participate in the summer camp where they get a chance to meet with children from different cultures and participate in sports and cultural activities. This has been proved to be a great motivating factor for children from both the organizations and helped them to widen their views and boost their self-confidence.
Apart from participating in the summer camp Komal, Kamla and Santosh spent 3 days in Paris, visiting historical places and making new friends.
