Update from SKSN

Thursday, 26 April 2012

During Simon and Robert’s recent trip to India the pair checked in with SKSN school to catch up with all that has been going on with the school. We have been working with the school, which is home to around 550 physically challenged children as well as providing vocational training scheme for school leavers, for some years and the visit is always the highlight of the trip.

In our last update we mentioned that Myakka now sponsored the vocational training center for girls of school leaving age. The girls are taught basic sewing skills which should provide them with means of finding employment. This kind of project is vital for giving every girl the skills to be able to gain a job when leaving school despite any disability she may have.

Myakka is now the main sponsor of the vocational training center and our aim is to grow and expand this. Georgie is now a trustee of the Indiability Foundation and her lead project is to develop the VTC so it can begin to make money and become a more viable business which will create more jobs for school leavers from SKSN.
