Here’s another quick update from the Raffa Home- where the boys have been learning new skills and trades to prepare them for leaving the home when they reach adulthood.
Last autumn, three of the older boys from the home attended some training on ‘Appropriate Paper Technology’, in other words, using paper to make items such as trays and stools. The products they made were decorated and sold some during a five-day festival in Delhi in November. The festival was around the issue of human trafficking, and a number of other organisations and community groups attended. The older boys from the home, Rakesh, Pankaj, Gulshan and Gein, also helped out during the festival as crew members, and Pankaj, who is interested in sound engineering, got a good experience working in this field during the event as well.
