Kirti at the Sawra school

Mumbai volunteer Kirti Chavan was in Pench recently for the IT programme that he initiated in February. Read the earlier posts here and here.

The programme was launched in the school at Sawra on a pilot basis and Kirti makes regular visits to monitor the progress. These are some of the pictures he took at the school.
