“Nothing in life is more beautiful than colours, and colours that are spread by you on the wall of our home are even more beautiful because of the love and affection you have put in it . We highly appreciate and admire your hard work and effort. It's only because of you that our walls have become a piece of art in many ways. Your presence gave our children a sea of opportunities to learn new things and look at things differently. You have inspired them to do things in their own ways. Nothing could have better than this. It was an honour to have you with us. Let there be many more such opportunities in future.”
Rashmi Singh, Home Leader, Kilkari Home for Girls, Aman Biradari - Rainbow Homes
It was great fun to get to know the boys individually and to teach them but also to learn from them at the same time. I learnt about their lives before joining the trust, aspirations and outlooks on life all of which was fascinating and illuminated the amazing work the Salaam Baalak Trust does (as well as the latest gossip on famous Bollywood actors). I have a lot to thank the boys for. They were always keen to take an active roll in the painting project. Painting with them was incredibly fun, I was apprehensive at first at the site of these huge bare walls but everything ended up nicely fitting into place and I was very pleased that the younger kids were happy with it too.
