Girls got also two computers. They learn computer skills two times a week among other school work.
Agran koululaiset collect, sell, and recycle furniture, clothes, devices and other things to the school.
WORLD VILLAGE FESTIVAL
We have participated in the World Village Festival since 2011.
INDIA WEDDING COFFEE
We made a celebration coffee for Agran Koululaiset in Kerala, India. It's a blend of Robusta, with added chicory powder.
We prefer local workers in all of our purchases. Desks were also custom made by our instructions.
Offering food at school is rarity in India. We have a menu designed for the school. Bhuri Gautam, a disabled daughter of the neighbor, is getting us the milk.
In India it's quite a challenge to stay clean when going to the toilet. On the roof terrace of our school we have a traditional Indian porcelain toilet. We teach the kids with toilet hygiene.
