The local Pinkanda community and TFT International Preschool parents were invited to attend the first Alternative Family and foster care awareness talk, given by our partner Vasundhra Om Prem, MD from Centre of Excellence Alternative Care India. We asked the audience to raise hands if they had ever heard of foster care and not one person did. Vasundhra described how children feel when they are deserted in orphanages and all agreed that every child should have the opportunity to grow up in a family.
By creating this awareness and understanding the first seeds of change are sown, and we were thanked from all of the parents for providing not only this interesting workshop but also a wonderful local preschool where the parents are also having the opportunity to learn. Some videoed the whole event to show their friends and families, and others asked how they could help.
