They may be the children of a lesser God, but divine intervention in the form
of a religious organization has decided to make things even. It has decided to
'bring up' these children. For a while, at least.
YWCA is organizing Anandam 2001, a camp for children from the lower economic strata. This will be a six day camp wherein children will be taught subjects like personal hygiene, behavior, civic sense, socialization and communication skills, apart from being trained in singing and dancing.
This training program is aimed at helping the child learn how to behave with its parents and friends and in the society. Personal hygiene training helps it to be clean, tidy and presentable. And the training in the remaining areas helps it grow in a proper way in society, along with develop a good sense about the neighbourhood that it is in. It also instills in the child the realization that poverty is not an obstacle to contributing positively to one's society.
