 An Appeal to support Ahambhumika to support rural India 

Friends , during  past you have supported whole heartedly Ahambhumika to carry out its activities. I am  requesting you to please go through the recent updates about Ahambhumika mentioned below and extend your support.  

The following are the activities which are being carried out by  Ahambhumika in a village namely Borda at the outskirts of Bhopal. The beneficiaries of these   activities are the under resourced children and women of village Borda and adjoining another village namely Mahabdia. The main occupation of the people of these villages is working as daily wage laboruer in the brick kilns, construction sites.

Mehak: It is after school support centre cum pre-school. We have two sections in Mehak. Each section has 40 children. The 1st section has children studying in different classes in the village school beginning from class 1 to class 5 .The children of these section attend our rural centre after school hours where in attempts are made to strengthen their  English, Hindi and  Mathematics,  (Computer , Art and craft is taught to these children twice during every week). 

The 2nd section which is Pre- school section has children in the age group of 1 to 5 years. These children are taught basic Hindi, English and Mathematics .These children too are taught Art and Craft twice in a week. I am attaching two photographs showing the children of Mehak.

Embroidery Training: We have also started training of embroidery to underprivileged rural girls and women since the month of November 2013. At present 20 - 23 women and girls are engaged in this activity. They are doing well and we expect that this group will take 10-12 months more to made products up to the mark which could be sold in the open market and thus this group will be in a position to be self reliant. 
 
Tribal Art : We are imparting education of Tribal painting ( Gond Art )  to under privileged 07 rural school children. These children are doing good now after making practice since last 6 months. This group will take 1 years more time to do quality work and than we will take up the sale of paintings made by these group and the amount earned could be utilized for the higher education of this group.
