A drawing competition ...

Children of Mankind in Action for Rural Growth (MARG) got an opportunity to meet each other on 14th December 2008 at the Nightingale Park (Shrubbery) Darjeeling.

A drawing competition was organized for the children. Unlike the earlier year, this year the children were advised to make greetings cards for their sponsors. MARG children from Ghoom Boys’ Higher Secondary School, Ghoom Girls’ Higher Secondary School, Turnbull High School, Municipal High School and St. George’s Higher Secondary School participated in this event. 

Though the breeze was cold we were lucky to have a bright sunny day. Special guests like Dr.  Sanjay Gurung (Dy. Director Mercy Corp Darjeeling) Sankar Daju and Didi from Sankar Foundation Darjeeling, Mr. R B Gurung (Retd. DYSP) Mr. Subash Chettri from (DGHC Tourism), Mr. Reza Pradhan from ETV and Mr. Arun Pradhan from Newar Samaj Darjeeling graced the occasion.

The event started with a brief note on MARG and its work by MARG’s General Secretary. During the competition children showed interest and made beautiful greeting cards for their sponsors. Miss. Prerna Tamang from Ghooms Girls’ Higher Secondary School bagged the first prize (Rs 300/- voucher), Miss. Bhagwati Chettri from Ghoom Girls’ Higher Secondary School bagged the second prize ( Rs 200/- voucher) and Mr. Siraj Kharia from St. George’s Higher Secondary School, Pedong got the third prize (Rs 100/- voucher). A geometry box was given to all MARG children.

MARG children were happy to have two special guests from US (Ms. Prerna Basnet and Mr. Basnet) We would like to thank you for coming and interacting with our children. We would not have been able to see these beautiful pictures if you had not taken it. Thank you once again.
