Celebrating our Anniversary

Dear friends and well-wishers of JMC, 
24th October this year marks the completion of 24 years since Jaishankar Memorial Centre (JMC) was established. The Centre has in these years done well in developing as a vibrant centre of activity and learning. The number of children who view JMC as “their centre”, grows each year. The children feel it is theirs because they can without inhibition learn, express their views, respect each other, imbibe values, build their self-esteem and display their multi-faceted talents. Over 200 children who have been exposed to the larger issues facing society, have become bold speakers for the rights of children and youth, all of which is in line with the Centre’s goal and aim.  
This has been possible as a result of support from a large number that includes guides, mentors, well-wishers and friends of JMC and the dedicated work of our staff and regular volunteers. Every day we continue to learn from the team work and united efforts. We have built each other’s capacity resulting in wonderful achievements.  
We celebrate this spirit of learning, this working together, making many friends and earning so much goodwill.

Festival for Youth and Children: A Resounding Success

October 10-12 (2014), was one of the busiest weekends and a most enjoyable one for the participants, the mentors and the organisers! JMC in partnership with India Festival for Youth & Children Empowerment (IFCAYE), Madhuban Books, My City4kids and Dhumketu organized 3 day event where over 100 children participated on Creativity, Ideation, Empowerment and Innovation. Of the over 100 participants between the ages 11-19 years, JMC children numbered 75! Other children included children from the National Association for the Blind, Deep Foundation, Vidya Niketan and Sardar Patel Vidyalaya. For three days the children were exposed to art and design, music, story-telling, yoga, photography and body movement, etc. The children participated vigorously and with a lot of enthusiasm and zeal.

We will be carrying reports and photographs of each of these sessions subsequently, watch out for these and see for yourselves the wonderful products that the Children and Youth have made.
