Stichting Diwa is going to organize a concert on 12 August 2011 at the beautiful garden of Swedish Church in Rotterdam. The main theme of this concert is Bansuri (flute). The flute is an important instrument in Indian/Pakistani classical music which is simply made of Bamboo. The bansuri flute plays an important role in religion as well as in stories and myths of the Indian subcontinent.
Amos Aaronson is going to play Indian Bansuri (flute) in the concert. He is an old student of Hariprasad Chaurasia, the famous bansuri-player who is teaching at the Rotterdams Conservatorium.
The purpose of this concert is fund raising for Stichting Diwa. Please come and join us to support the education of Brick Kilns children in Pakistan.

Ongoing issues and events

A lot has happened since the first newsletter. In Pakistan work has been done by investigating brick kiln areas and defining places to start schools and by informing brick kiln workers about the education project. The people are very enthusiastic and are looking forward to the moment the school really will start. Shahlla visited her family in Gujranwala and also visited the brick kiln workers. More about this in this newsletter.
Zaterdag 20 november werden we gastvrij ontvangen bij Bakkerij Kersten in Rotterdam voor een broodbakworkshop ten gunste van het Steenbakkers Onderwijs Project van Stichting Diwa. We werden direct aan het werk gezet met het maken van een rijkgevulde kerststol. Het was nog niet eenvoudig om alle rozijnen, sucade en noten in het deeg te kneden.
