Good news in Khajuraho!

These beautiful bins are everywhere in the town centre! We have asked for some in the Old village too... Let's see how well they are used and how long they last!

For those who wonder, the green bin says 'wet litter' (which we guess means 'food waste') and the blue one says 'dry litter' (our guess: 'everything else')

School & Cloth Bag Project news!

The Different School

After a long break, The Different School is opening again tomorrow! We did a lot of cleaning in our classroom today and it is ready now.  Many of our students have been coming these last few days to ask us when Vio's English class was going to start again, so we are happy to say it will start tomorrow!

We took some time to open the school again as Vio was away in the Himalayas for three months from April to June, and after she came back for personal reasons. Vio is also working on a very interesting new
(personal) blog project, about which we shall be sending more information soon. It is taking a lot of her time...

Cloth Bag Project

You might also be wondering what is going on with the Cloth Bag Project! Well, we haven't opened the centre again yet, because we are finding it difficult to motivate the local population to buy our current stock of cloth bags...

Mentalities in Khajuraho are not very progressive, shall we say!!! So patience will be necessary. We are currently looking to sell our bags elsewhere in India, but it is not easy.

Suggestions are welcome! And if you are interested in buying our bags, please do contact us!

Patience, diligence... In India, things happen 'slowly slowly'...
