The Exhibition

We have planned an exhibition to congratulate the boys and volunteers on all the hard work they have put in over the last few weeks and to celebrate the wonderful photographs they have taken.We have spent the last few days getting ready, having the photographs printed and mounting them on black card and then the morning of the exhibition the volunteers made 250 samosas which will distribute at the orphanage.

We held the exhibition in the recreation room at the orphanage and with the help of all staff and volunteers working on the different programmes we prepared the room, displaying the boys pictures and decorating with bright streamers. It was lovely to see the boys faces as they looked round the exhibition, so proud to see their photos and their friends up on the walls. The trustee of the orphanage also attended and gave great praise to the project

After everyone had had a good look round they started to tuck in to our home made samosas. With everyone distracted we took down the pictures and created a book for each boy, with their two chosen photographs a portrait of them and their sunpaper which they made at the start of the project. Each volunteer presented this to their boys. 

It was a lovely end to an amazing few weeks.
