Many thanks to KOLS!

Thank you very much to KOLS (pronounced “coles”) for working with Paper Kite to support orphans in Bihar. Both organizations believe in the power of education and the positive impact reading has on children’s lives. In support of our upcoming trip to Bihar, KOLS has made a generous donation to help further Paper Kite’s cause.  It is socially-driven businesses like KOLS that make it possible to drive change and make a difference in the lives of others.

Diwali Celebrations at Jeanamitabh!

The kids at the Jeanamitabh orphanage recently celebrated the festival of Diwali!

Here are some pictures from their celebration earlier this month.

Upcoming India Trip – Calling all volunteers!

Paper Kite Children’s Foundation is in the midst of planning it’s annual trip to Bodhgaya, Bihar, India.  Our president, Tarik Kadri, will be leading a group of volunteers for our next trip which is scheduled for January/February 2014. If you are interested in joining us and would like more information on how to get involved, please email Tarik (president@paperkitefoundation.com).

We will be having a Skype meeting on Wednesday Nov 13 at 7:30pm to discuss specifics.

For those unfamiliar with our field work, our primary purpose is to purchase items from the local village and deliver them to the orphanages in Bihar. There are opportunities to conduct research/write field blogs, teach the children languages or activities or sports, and take photos and videos of the children for Paper Kite.

For more information on our Field Work please visit: http://paperkitefoundation.com/get-involved/field-work-bihar-india-2012/

To get a feel for what our volunteers do while in Bihar, please check out some of our Field Blogs: http://paperkitefoundation.com/category/field-blog/

Thanks,

Paper Kite Children’s Foundation
