Just to prove we haven't hidden Angie in a cupboard somewhere here are a few photos of her taken today at the Asare School. We have all been looking after each other, but we won't let Angie be in charge of the presentation clicker again!!! 😊

Asare School is for mentally challenged people and is sponsored heavily by the Rotary Club in Manipal and was set up as a joint initiative with Manipal University.

Children and young adults live here permanently and have lessons and recreation time together. They also make synthetic roses and plates to sell and raise money for the school. The vocational training offered allows some people to go on and lead independant lives and find a job.

It was originally set up by Jai Vittal - Estate Manager at Manipal University and named after his daughter who attends the school. He showed us round today and we met his wife who is a teacher at the school and his youngest son who is in the final year of his degree in Computer Science.
