In January Shumpun arranged workshop for the parent, Hands on training with the child and learning how to enhance play from exploratory to symbolic. This was an open forum to find out the facts of the barriers parents faced during the time engaging their child with special need and making plans for the day. Mrs. Manjulika Majumdar and Mrs Reeni Sengupta moderated the sessions.
Shumpun Foundation’s Annual Picnic was held on 30th of December 2018 at DB Park. Main objective of this event was not only having fun but also an opportunity for the parents to exchange their views and experiences about their own child’s development to another parent.
Shumpun Foundation held 10 weeks workshop of “Language and Drama” for the children of age 6-14 from (23/12/2018) to (28/12/2018).There were 15 participants and 2 teachers. Children were all assisted by their parents. The introductory and closing workshops were conducted as Parent Training and Feedback Workshops.
On Sunday 21st of April, the first event of Summer Camp’s community trip was arranged. 13 children from Shumpun foundation, six staff members and 11 young, engineer volunteers from "Cognizant Out Reach" went to visit Swami Vivekananda’s ancestral house and Calcutta Police Museum. Children learnt about the childhood of the great Indian saint Swami Vivekananda. They observed many precious musical instruments, clothes, books and other things used by Swamiji. It was a fantastic experience for the children, volunteers and the staff. Calcutta Police museum was the next stop. Children heard the story of the different martyrs like "Kanailal", "Barin Ghosh" "Aurobindo Ghosh" freedom fighters like "Bina Das", "Binoy Bose" and many others. They saw the arms and ammunition surrendered at the feet of Mahatma Gandhi after the truce was called by the two communities in Kolkata in 1947 riot. Children had a hearty lunch. The transportation was also provided by "Cognizant Out Reach". On behalf of all parents, children and staff we thank the corporation.
This time the children learn to appreciate "Mati" or raw earth in a special program held in Kumartuli, the world's largest clay and pottery making hub. They would may be for the first time able to hold clay or mati on their own hands and feel it. Under the guidance of expert artists they let their imagination run riot and embark on moulding their mati.
On 27th and 28th of May, Shumpun arranged a group based event Backyard Play. Based on the interactions in a group a questionnaire will be developed later to find out the facts of the barriers parents faced during the time of rearing their child with special need. Mrs Reeni Sengupta moderated the sessions.
