Welcome Jennifer!

JenniferInter'ludeJennifer is a volunteer who recently arrived in Bodhgaya, India, to oversee the development of our Early Childhood project. This program was launched in January in partnership with the French association Inter’Lude.

The program provides training sessions for childcare workers in under-served isolated villages in the district of Gaya.  We teach them how to organize different activities for preschool children (aged 3 to 6 years old), and to design games and toys made from locally available resources. The toys are then donated to the community. Our “free play” sessions help the children to enjoy learning and add a new dimension of fun and play in the otherwise rigid local education system.
