Save Endangered Stories with Grannies
Megh Risaldar – Food 4 Thought Foundation

29th January 2022
02.00 pm - 02.50 pm

Duration: 50 mins
Age group:

At Food 4 Thought Foundation, we believe that the strength of our long-lasting culture is its ethos. The values and belief systems that have been passed down the generations through folklore and stories told to us by our grandparents are now losing their space in our lives as we move into the age of nuclear families and fast-paced lifestyles. These stories are facing extinction and getting lost in the maze of unwarranted data and information and digital distractions. 

Project “Save endangered Stories” focuses on recording and saving these endangered stories and folklore narrated by our grandparents. These recorded stories will also be digitized later and be available for wider circulation and reference through e-library so that the legacy of these stories passes on to the next generation.

The only way to ensure that our children are protected against sexual abuse is to raise awareness. This workshop by Sayfty aims to do just that, by engaging with children and parents on a serious topic like safe and unsafe touch. It hopes to engage with the community at large and promote the need to start a conversation with children about important issues like these in order to prevent abuse in future.

Reading Theatre
Asma Zaidi

29th January 2022
03.30 am - 04.30 pm

Duration: 45 mins
Age Group: 8-12 years
Participants: 30

This workshop for children aims to promote fluency, build confidence, and show the effect of voice modulation. Theatre requires movements, expressions, and gestures. The workshop focuses on demonstrating how reading with voice modulation can give life to different roles. It aims to familiarize children with different aspects of script and characters. This activity helps children to understand many concepts like:

  • Literary elements of a story: plot, setting, characters etc.

  • Text type: compare and contrast, cause-effect, chronological order

  • Purposeful non-fiction reading

Since this workshop is online, we will use technology to try and get into the skin of a role and have some fun! Anyone is welcome to join, observe and learn. The only prerequisite for participants is to be a fluent reader.
