WOHAA winners 2013-14 winners trip to Chennai in February 2015

 

The winners of WOHAA 2013-14 have just returned from a fantastic trip to see the work of
the Charity in Chennai, India.

 

The girls all aged 14 from three different schools have had a trip of a lifetime!

Amy and Lauren from Nonsuch High School for Girls, Natasha from Greenacre School,
and Deepika from Henrietta Barnet School.

 

The students were also hugely lucky to be invited to the residence of  British Deputy High

Commissioner to Chennai!  Mr. Bharat Joshi and his wife very warmly welcomed all of us,

and spent a lot of time finding out more about WOHAA and the dreams and passions of each of us.  

Thank you Mr. Joshi!

 

The girls visited the school, SSSIE in Chennai, which is funded by Wings of Hope
Children’s charity every day of the week. They had prepared lessons for children at this
school from Lower Kindergarten all the way up to year 9 ! They taught subjects like
Spanish, French, Russian, Maths, English, English songs, Drawing, storytelling and spoke
about Health and cleanliness issues.

 

They also spoke to the boys in the Senior classes about GCSE’s and Army cadets and also
about different career choices.

 

They also taught the children at this school to play Netball. Lauren who plays Netball to a
very high standard, spent time teaching them. She also gifted them a netball signed by the
England Netball Team!

 

Amy, Natasha, Lauren and Deepika also had a chance to visit the second project supported
by The Wings of Hope Children’s charity, that of the Slum Tuition project.

 

Rajni Sriram who accompanied them on this trip, took them to one of the slum areas in
Perumbur, North Chennai, where they visited 5 different Tuition Centres. The children at
these Centres, were eagerly waiting to see us, and presented us with a rose each and some
drawings as a sign of their appreciation.

 

It was a very humbling experience and all of us, came away feeling so blessed, that we here
in England are looked after so well at home by our families and go to such nice Schools.

The visit has taught us to appreciate what we have and share what we have , with others
less fortunate than ourselves.

On Sunday 9th December 2012 Kwok and Selasi from Barclays ran the annual Santa Fun Run to raise money for Wings of Hope.

The run took place in Greenwich Park, one of the largest parks on London area,a beautiful setting for the event.

Wings of Hope would like to thank everyone who ran to raise money for poor and underprivileged children in India and Malawi.

 

 

 

 

Spirits were high on the chilly December morning as over 2,000 people gathered in Greenwich Park. Santa costumes were provided by Doitforcharity to all the runners.

 

The annual Santa Run raises money for hundreds of different charities, as well as awareness for special causes.

 

It was great fun and watching hundreds of Santas running, walking and skipping around the park was certainly a memorable sight!

A big thank you top everyone involved!

Mrs Krupali sky dives for the Wings of Hope


The Wings of Hope would like to say a big thank you to Mrs Krupali who recently completed a sky dive and raised money for the Wings of Hope.

It was out of the blue that Mrs Krupali decided to do a sky dive for charity. She wanted to give something back to society and thought that the Wings of Hope cause and mission was a worthy one. Not only did Mrs Krupali want to help others she wanted to prove to her family and friends that she could perform a dare devilling sky dive.

So the Wings of Hope would like to extend a big thank you to Mrs Krupali for raising so much money to help poor and orphaned children in India and Malawi.
