I hope that following the strong storm we had over Monday night and some of Wednesday everyone kept safe. With terrible news of storms, the previous week around India – I am sure we were all quite worried.
The storm was a stark reminder of the strength of mother nature and how fortunate we are that such events are infrequent.
It seems timely however, to point out that at a time when many people have lost their homes, that on Wednesday 9thMay, I secured an agreement between King’s College India and one of the largest most respected non-governmental organizations (NGO’s) in the World – Habitat for Humanity.
This NGO works with schools worldwide to help raise awareness through various projects and competitions to ”buildstrength, stability, and self reliance through shelter” and one of the most exciting projects they do is what they call ‘The Build Project” where students who are 13 years old and above can actually go and assist in building shelters for homeless people.
In early August, following a visit and presentation from habitat for Humanity representatives, we will launch the Habitat for Humanity Art Project – following this, we will explore a Build Project in India.
