Today I realized that every kid has picked their favourite volunteer by now. I noticed disappointment on the faces of those whose favourite hadn't come due to exams. A bond has very obviously been established between the children and the volunteers. But this didn't hinder their participation during day. There were no specific activities planned as such before so I was worried we wouldn't have anything to do. But to my surprise, the afternoon unfolded very smoothly. We used the resources according to kids' choice. They indicated what they wanted to do, like they started playing hopscotch and we joined them and other kids also joined in and it became an activity for a while. The idea of letting them choose what they wanted to do was very effective and the Caravan was more interesting and involved than other days.
