English Summer Camp 2019

Thank you to all the children who attended The T.E.A. Project's first 'English Summer Camp' over the past 6 weeks of school holidays. It was a great success. Attended regularly by over 90 children from schools and communities supported by the project and facilitated by our wonderful & dedicated TEAm of full time staff, volunteers and interns.
Holidays are a particularly vulnerable time for children within tea plantation communities. With little to focus or positively stimuulate them children are exposed to a heightened threat of danger from abuse & neglect. Left alone or often obliged to follow their parents into the fields or assist with domestic duties.
The summer camp is a positive and supported, child centred environment where children can learn, have fun and feel safe.
We look forward to hosting next years camp in a fully developed Empowerment Centre.
