We regularly run Summer Camps in the CEDC., and thereby provide opportunities to Interns and other volunteers to work closely with the children at the centre. This year 2019 we had two young interns from Amity College, who were provided this wonderful opportunity. Over the course of the hot summer days, the children were able to use their vacation time to great effect, under the guidance of the volunteers learning crafts, having workshops on the environment, social behavior, counseling, nutrition, and of course a fun approach to education.
