A sneak-peak from the Adolescent Girls' Group in the middle of some discussions in Bodeli, a village in the state of Gujarat. We weren't allowed to be privy to the conversation :) but we were informed by the facilitators that the girls love these groups -- they discuss amongst other things, their hopes, dreams, and difficulties.

Adolescent Girls' Groups are run by members of the community, spearheaded by local NGOs, and supported by UNICEF. These groups help the members address issues like menstruation, sexual harassment etc. and facilitate soft-skills training for the girls.

Feel proud of Sunil. Best wishes to Anwesha Foundation.
Meet Sunil Mahali, a young boy from Jorhat district of Assam. In 2010, he was officially invited by the Deputy Commissioner of Jorhat to tell a story before the Chief Minister of Assam. Sunil's joy knew no bound that day. The same year, he also took part in the All Assam Storytelling Competition organized by Anwesha and was adjudged the best storyteller among 200 participants.

Hailing from a small hamlet in Jorhat district, Sunil’s family surrounds his elder brother who is a casual labourer in a nearby tea estate. Shy and composed Sunil attended the Story telling programme in Samaguri Jorhat, in the previous year - 2009, when he was eight. The change in Sunil’s persona started showing results as from the very beginning he showed interest in the programme and improved his language. He achieved grade ‘A’ in all the assessment test of concentration, conversation and participation.

The storytelling programme initiated by Heritage Assam, an implementing partner of UNICEF commenced in November 2009 for language skill development of the children of tea garden communities. Minimizing the gap between home and school language the programme started at 20 locations in Tea Gardens of Jorhat district. More than 1400 children in the age group 3-14 years attended it and subsequently the programme was extended to 50 locations in Dibrugarh district with 100 storytellers. The programme focused on developing concentration, conversation and participation skills in children and it was seen that for 70% of the students the grades went up from C to A in all three areas towards the end of the sessions.
