Session On Human Trafficking
People were created to be loved and things were created to be used. The world is in turmoil because things are being loved and people are being used. A most common example of this is HUMAN TRAFFICKING. It is not only an injustice to the victim but also to the family and the world. So to raise awareness about human trafficking, Jazba selected the area which is most likely to get targeted i.e. a JJ colony. Our Event Management Intern conducted an informative session for equipping these tods with ways for protecting themselves from child trafficking.
Humans are born to slay, grow and envision and not to be imprisoned. Let them do that.
Session on ill Effects Of Pollution
‘Intelligence, knowledge about the environment plus character” that is the goal of education. ‘ We as a part of the society should encourage pollution-free environment and should provide knowledge about the same to kids of the nation. So team Jazba conducted learning and a quiz session for the tiny tots to educate them about pollution and its ill effects. Kids were quite motivated and had a different angle to view the environment after the session, this made our efforts worth it. This was followed by a poster making session on ‘End Pollution’
Menstrual hygiene workshop
Team Jazba marched off to our beloved slum area, Srinivaspuri, on 11th October with minor equipment like a laptop and a speaker but with major enthusiasm in their minds to teach the importance of menstrual hygiene to the poor people residing there. The virtual workshop in which some of the most talented and educated women spoke about menstruation and stuff related to it with the intent to spread awareness among the young souls ended up to be such a delightful as well as informative event. Little girls listened to them speaking from a screen, talking to them and initiating a healthy discussion about something that has always been a taboo in India, especially in the backward sections of the society. Not only this, but girls asked questions and raised their concerns among the speakers. They talked about things like in their society people say things like girls become ‘impure’ during periods and they shouldn’t cook or go to temples. Eliminating these stereotypes by communication is the biggest task that was explained to them, urging them to talk to their mothers, sisters, friends and other girls about periods confidently.
How should we wash our hands?
Jazba is on its journey to give proper sanitation to all irrespective of their socio-economic background. Our tiny tots enthusiastically learnt how to wash hands musically. We hope from next time they’ll enjoy washing hands.
Children were put into groups according to their prior knowledge. A group of three to four kids was appointed to each volunteer to ensure focus and prospering results. Some kids who left their schooling for some reasons were also encouraged to join us and resume their education. Some were hesitant to study all together but we talked them around. A bit of homework was given to them to make sure that they stay in touch with their studies. Seeing the kids working hard for their future made our efforts worthwhile and filled us with a sense of accomplishment.
“All work, no play makes jack a dull boy”. We conducted some enthralling games for the little ones as exercise and some fun is equally as important as studying. The kids were excited to play and compete. A relaxed mind is a rejuvenated one and a balance scheme of work and relaxation is the proper way to keep the mind in trim shape.
stationery distribution drive
It’s the festive season and every child deserves something special in it! October is a month of happiness and joy, filled with lots of festivals and holidays, it is one of the most awaited months of the year. It is more or less ironical that things that may seem ‘special’ to the children living in the slum area are just ordinary stuff for most of the children. To kids who think getting food thrice a day means having a ‘lucky day’, stationery items are like magic. Team Jazba decided to conduct a distribution drive in one of our adopted slum areas, Srinivaspuri, to hand registers, colours, pencils and sharpeners to the children residing there. The smiles on their faces showed how much a notebook can mean to them. A pencil became a symbol for them that people who are well off care for them, that they belong in society and that they deserve all the good things in the world. I know that is a very huge weight for just a small pencil to carry but when compared to the children’s innocent wishes, it seems to be appropriate. The box of colours clutched in their hands depicted their life ahead of them which could turn out to be as colourful as their imagination!
Happiness is real, only when it is shared!
Team Jazba decided to conduct some intriguingly engaging activities for the little ones a few days before Diwali. Activities included the making of greeting cards, colouring rangolis and making lamps. The kids were very excited to use all the decorative materials and were taught how to use them. Colourful glitters, sheets and sketch pens were distributed amongst them. Witnessing the joyous and lively mood of the little ones, elated ours as well.
Colours Of Care: Holi Celebrations
Holi not only strengthens the bond of unity but it also makes us stronger as a family, By the end of the day, the vibrant blues, pinks and yellows made every child’s vision so beautiful and unique, The Festival of Colours was celebrated with great enthusiasm by having a creative session of drawing and colouring with the little ones, filling their minds and life with colours of joy. Jazba also celebrated the festival of colours by distributing gulaal and marking their day with love and affection.
Republic Day Celebrations
Jazba celebrated this Republic Day with these tiny tots. Freedom in their mind, Strength in the words, Pureness in their blood and Zeal in their hearts. It was pleasing to see them indulge in various activities with us. Our celebration ended with reciting our National Anthem.
