Dear Friends,

Bornfree Art School is now located in the Tamil Government School, Austin Town, in the heart of the Bangalore city. We came to this school to improve the condition of the school and attract children to education through teaching dance, music, theater, sculpturing, painting, photographying and sports. There are no aid from the government to make the school condition better, for which we will take up. Its school children are potentially child labourers and street children because they all come from the very poor backgrounds. Students of BAS now teach school children dance, theater etc and they attend the regular classes at the school.

Since last week, we started the Shramadan" the contribution of labor". We clean the toilets, scrape walls to paint freshly and get all desks and chairs repaired. We are pleased to inform you that Bornfree Art School made a plan of action of the year of 2007. Here is a schedule that we planned with students.
