shuktara - Puja smiling 27 January 2016

Watching a miracle at shuktara

On Thursday evening, January 21st 2016, CHILDLINE called Pappu Mishra, the Chairman of shuktara, to say there was a girl in need of a home. He went to visit her and organised immediately to take her to Lula Bari, our girls home.

She arrived with documents describing her as "Unknown". The first few days she was understandably overwhelmed by her new surroundings. The girls and staff have really made her feel at home and just a few days after her arrival it happened - she smiled!

Now she has a home at shuktara, and a name - Puja Bagh. (Click here to read more...)

Tamina at Lula Bari, the girls’ home

14th January 2016
Today, Tamina didn't go to school - not a huge problem because two tutors come every day to work with the girls at Lula Bari.

Nandita di comes during the day and does needlework (see some examples we have put on the wall behind Tamina), yoga and exercise. Then in the evening Priyanka comes to help with homework and often stays over and spends the night there.

Since Tamina is full of energy it's good for her to have activities to keep her interested and busy.
