Kriti Program is currently being run in Phase 2 with children from Gujarat, India accompanied by on-ground facilitators.
Phase 1 successfully served children from 3 schools and 2 NGOs in under-resourced settings and generated an overwhelmingly positive response!
I didn't have to go out to get materials, I got everything at home. It was simple to do, I didn't have to get anyone's help. I learned a lot. I learned that in this difficult time also, we can do something interesting- Student, Participant in our pilot
