The new Boys Accommodation block at our JSR Residential School for Special Needs Children is now complete! Now both boys and girls at the school can sleep comfortably and in separate quarters in order to comply with new Indian State law.
Thanks to all those who supported the 14 strong team of LFT Runners at the Hatfield Broad Oak 10K on 28th May and helped them to raise more than £150 towards the Lotus Flower Trust.
The team are so committed to running and raising for the charity that they also recently completed the High Easter 10K on the hottest day of the year so far. To date the runners have raised an amazing £10,500 towards LFT Projects in India. On behalf of all the lives you are helping to change, we are so proud and grateful! Keep running!
Two teams of boys from Winchester College are to be congratulated on the completion of the residential accommodation at Lamdon Jamyang School in Khalste, Ladakh. The new block enables 60 of the 300 children who attend, to stay on site, instead of travelling up to two hours each way by foot or bus in order to come to school, dramatically improving their education.
Last week we were sent photographs from the headteacher Mrs Joshee at our KM Johny Primary School in Tamil Nadu, funded by staff from BSkyB in the UK and India. The photos show the children, staff and their parents all receiving sight tests, funded locally. This will no doubt improve their lives and education considerably! It is so great to see this wonderful school for Dalit ('untouchable') children going from strength to strength.
