Trip to the Beach

Friday, February 16, 2007

Ibrahimputnam, it translates to "Where Abraham Dwells". There are about 1,000 children attending here. Some are day school only, but many live here. We had the fortune of spending time here to help build some staff housing and an orphanage.

What would an Indian school be without cricket?

Women do heavy and intesive labor in India. This lady had 2 daughters. One was a student and the other worked with her, hauling dirt and concrete 10-12 hours a day. I wish she and the others knew that people all around the world could see them.

At the end, there was an orphanage and new staff housing, and ongoing construction for build another dorm. In due time, we'll return.

I loved the new Nick Dean! What a lovely group of children. How nice they can have that school and the staff can have comfortable housing. Love the pictures. G Dolly

Nick, your pictures are really getting to be quite good. They may make a photographer of you yet! Ha! Seriously though, I am amazed at the spirit of your work.
Keep on blogging!
