In a first of its kind, Anjali, a 2020-22 Cohort Bhumi Fellow, along with the Social & Emotional Learning Team organised “Vaanga Pazhagalam!” event at her school, Macaulay Nursery and Primary School on 26th March 2022. 

The event was conceptualised for parents to explore “mental well-being” and enable families to spend quality time together. The event saw a footfall of over 100+ families who actively engaged with a skit, games, puzzles and other fun activities. Feedback was extremely positive and we could see so many parents and children leaving with smiling faces that day. 
In the long term, this kind of engagement will strengthen relationships between the school system and the community to ensure that the well-being of the child is emphasized at all levels.

This event was all the more special because the teachers of Macaulay co-owned the planning and execution which is a testament to Anjali’s intervention.  A huge thanks to our volunteers, fellows, and the Operations Team for their efforts as well.
