During these unprecedented times, we had our little masked heroes to the rescue. The children who are part of HiH India’s Satellite Teaching Centers (STCs) were encouraged and guided by the teachers to hand-make their own masks to ensure safety during the COVID-19 second wave. These teaching sessions were shared with the children via online platforms. The 175 children from the 28 STCs across Tamil Nadu being super enthusiastic about this new project produced 335 masks and we are still counting!
The masks made were not only distributed to their families but also to others in their respective villages. To motivate and encourage these children, we at HIH India have organized a special ‘appreciation contest’ in the coming days to award every child with a special prize for being a ‘masked’ hero!
