On this Thanksgiving, we, at Janyaa are very thankful about the results reaping from the efforts of the program!

I’m taking it easy with my words here, as this post speaks for itself …with these encouraging words from the students and teachers of the schools which have benefited from the various learn-by-doing Math & Science toolkits provided by Janyaa!!

Zilla Parishad High School, Perveda:
“Most of the students here are from villages. If we teach them direct from textbooks, they find it difficult to understand. The material given by Janyaa foundation is very useful to us.” Ravinder, Head Master.

“Even without studying at home, we are able to do well in the school exams. Without studying by rote, we are writing the exams. We now like coming to the school and we are doing well in our exams”, Deepthi, Student.

Mumbai Malwani schools:
“Janyaa Kit has made the Students more attentive” – Teachers.

Indian Development Foundation:
“We thank Janyaa for such a wonderful effort for the development of scientific temper among students and making learning better.” 

R.K. Foundation, Bangalore:
“We are very impressed with Janyaa’s learn-by-doing concepts. We are very thankful to Janyaa. In future, if Janyaa supports us,  we will implement the program in Kerala and Orissa also”

September 2012

September was a busy month for Janyaa with many exciting events held in association with our helpful partners. We are very grateful to our volunteers who have made these events successful. Rajesh Shastry, our volunteer lead has been phenomenal in inspiring volunteers.

A Bollywood Broadway Musical celebrating the life of Legendary Rajesh Khanna. Janyaa presented this event in association with Radio Zindagi and Andaaz Music Band on September 14th in Fremont, CA. Not surprisingly, this was a sold out event attended by an excited crowd. Janyaa also had an information desk for providing details about the learning program.

On September 15th in Palo Alto, Janyaa presented a comedy Hindi play in association with Instant Karma. This too was a packed event.  This was the first ever Bollywood Musical Play involving famous actors from the Hindi Cinema – Padmini Kolhapure, Shakti Kapoor and Navin Bawa . The play was thoroughly enjoyed by the crowd and was aptly titled – Aasman Se Gire Khajoor Pe Atke. Volunteers from Janyaa were very involved with the play setup and logistics.

On September 16th, Janyaa in association with Mystique Events, presented Vivah 2012 – an exciting Bridal and Lifestyle event. With a packed house, sold-out vendor booths, a great fashion show & riveting reviews by the press & media, WLEA was billed not only as California’s but as North America’s biggest South Asian wedding & lifestyle expo. We had an information desk setup and our volunteers helped with the event setup.

That’s all for now. Please look forward to our updates in the next newsletter. We have the grand Utsav 2012 event with Dandiya, fun events for the entire family and a talent show for kids. Please do attend. For more details, view the link.

Janyaa, a 501c(3) organization set up in 2009, focuses on developing creative problem solving skills in rural kids in India. The name, Janyaa, which translates to “life” appropriately fits with the vision of this organization. Please send your feedback on our program, events or the newsletter to Janyaa. We appreciate your support and time.
