1. Uganda : following the possible threat from intruders – not just to our school but the district – the educational authorities decreed that all premises should be secure – Hermitage Secondary School and Vocational Centre therefore needed gates !
2. India : Henny Penny Library 38 – magnificent Sujata and team. The library is situated at Himalaya Public School Village Suyalgarh. This not for profit initiative was started five years back by Mr. Brij Mohan Joshi since the children from his village had to travel very long distances to reach the nearest school for basic education. They started off as a Primary school but today they have extended it to 8th grade, adding one class every year. The school focuses on all round development of the child and provides a platform for many cultural and sporting activities along with academics.
3. Nepal : Maiya visits rural schools to discuss possible areas where she and ourselves might be of assistance.
4. Nigeria : Gladys organises visit to Museum and Bakery. Excellent educational practice following bakery workshops at the school.
