We organized our first "Listen and Learn" session: an opportunity to listen to mentors and discuss their ideas.  Ashok (one of the earliest boys to come to Papa's House and now a member of the Board)  and Tanya (Director of Transition) facilitated the program. The students listened to a TED talk, discussed its content, and shared their perspectives in reaction to it.

“Picnic,” one of the most awaited days of the year, was organized for the adult students at the Chelsea Center. This year our destination was Nagarkot,  an attractive place from where we could see peaceful snowy mountains. Without waiting for any particular occasion, we honored our students who have been reading here for more than three years with mugs and bags featuring the CECC logo. They enjoyed the moment dancing with their friends, filled with joy and good humor.
