India: 120 village preschool workers trained!

On September 8 and 10, more than 120 childcare workers and government supervisors took part in the training held in BodhGaya by the Karuna-Shechen staff on the subject of the role of play in the life of a child. Within the coming weeks, they will also receive games and toys to do the activities with the 3 to 5-year-old children.



Daulaut Kumari, from thee Baglati Center, shares her enthusiasm: “I am very happy with the way Karuna-Shechen conducted the workshop. I want to spend more time playing with the children but up till now I did not have any material. I am certain that the children will benefit from the various activities and I look forward to receiving toys and drawing and painting material soon!

Gita Sharme, responsible since 1998 for the Paraiya Kurd Center, is also very happy to have learned “new basic concepts for childhood education and how babies can play with toys.” She feels she “will be able to teach better.”

Within the frame of the Early Childhood Department, 62 new Anganwadi preschool Centers in Bihar are supported this year by Karuna-Shechen India, which now brings the total to 200 in Bihar and Jharkhand!
