Celebrations Come Full Circle at Ghazipur Children’s Centre

The Ghazipur Children’s Centre ended 2022 with a vibrant celebration, with fun for all the children, the teachers and the alumni.

December was a busy month for the team and children at the Ghazipur Children’s Centre in India.  They staff team spent time shopping for Christmas gifts for the students and the month was full of activity, craft, rehearsals and preparations.




The celebration event, held on 23rd December, had over 175 students in attendance on the terrace, which although is in need of some repair, acted as romantic hosting all the children, from young to seniors.

The party showcased some performances from the children, of every age group, and food was served with pizza, samosa, wafers and Christmas cake in the offering.

The entire staff team shopped for gifts for the children with care and consideration.  Each child was presented with a new school bag and the team scoured every local market sourcing the best buys to keep the children warm this winter.  The children were happy to receive their colourful warm hoodies too.

As part of the activity, the Centre took their senior students to a Christmas carnival and to the Garden of Five Senses.

On new years eve, they travelled to Bangla  Sahib, to visit a Bangle Bazar.

During the month, the alumni, currently interning at the centre, also had the opportunity to attend their first ever networking event.

Above all, the greatest achievement for the centre is their alumni.  They have studied at the centre and are now all interns teaching at the centre, full circle…a Ghazipur Children’s Centre family.

The full team were kindly presented gifts of personal art created, by Karan, a 14 year old student and gifted artist.

A great celebration to end the year for our partners and beneficiaries at Ghazipur.
