In December 2022, shoes and socks were distributed to the twenty children supported by ICT at the Bhawani Tola village, Maner, Patna. It was a memorable day for the children because they had never worn shoes and socks before. Since it was winter in India, the children and the project leader felt that it was the right time to wear the shoes and they enjoyed the warmth and comfort that they provided. 

In December we celebrated ‘Human Rights Day’ by holding an advocacy meeting on children’s rights. This was attended by some of the children, their parents and siblings. We discussed the rights of every human being and how to better express opinions in order to gain access to local government services.
