We were allotted about 22 days to teach and work on this project. This year we started this programme on 6th April to 27th April 2016. The topics were chosen by keeping in mind the focus areas of TCV this year i.e. “Moral and Ethical values”. Some of the topics are 365 daily advices from the heart, Middle way approach, origin of honorific words etc. The actual presentation of the project was done yesterday on 27th April whole day in the school auditorium.

The day was a knowledgeable and a fruitful one.
