If you’ve been following our Ama Ghar blog, you’ve probably noticed that the last two entries have been written by the children themselves… this is a result of a very fun contest created by Rob Sanders, Treasurer of the Ama Foundation Board. During his visit to Ama Ghar in November, Rob realized that the children have wonderful stories to tell, and that to create a Blog Competition would encourage them to tell those stories while working on their English, writing and computer skills.
The result? Plenty of wonderful blog posts, including the two winning entries – the one entitled “Visit to a Refugee Camp” by Srijana (14 years and older category) and the other entitled “Do You Know Me?” by Ashim (under 14 years old category).
The weeks preceding the deadline for entries were great fun, as the children interviewed each other and thought about their recent experiences in order to come up with interesting topics for their blog posts. As you can see by the photos, Rob Uncle enjoyed it, too – he encouraged the children by showing them other interesting websites and helping them with their compositions. We’ll be showcasing more of the childrens’ work in the coming months… we hope you enjoy them as well!
