At the school in Perithachoor


This is the main school that Communities Rising works with. We visited the school 4 times being greeted with dances and big smiles from the kids. The kids ranged from 3rd to 7th standard and even though they got a little wild at times, they were a joy to work with. Our last project was a large scale human loom weaving that the kids all participated in making. All of the fabric was free scraps from a tailoring center. It was a lot of fun.

An example of how fun (wild) the kids are. :)

The cutest little girl

Perithachoor

This is the school that Community Rising is most associated with and focused on. This was our first visit there playing a drawing game with the kids. They are so so cute!

Tailoring school


This was our first visit to the tailoring school where we are working with women to help suggest creative forms of expanding their market of craft. These ladies are very very talented. :)
