The day ended with students getting goodies like snacks ,juices and candies….. It was a fun filled day for all!!!
On Thursday,4th of February,2016, Paramveer Chadha, a young and energetic 12 year old visited Pragati. This Grade 6 student from the Gurgaon based school Kunskapsskolan has been collecting good quality, English story books from family and condominium acquaintances so that he could donate them for the students at Pragati. So he came and read out stories to the students from pop up story books and kept them enthralled with the pictures hidden under the flaps. He took the conversation forward to hygiene, good habits, importance of reading and studying.
Needless to say, both the children and Paramveer enjoyed themselves.
