After the success of the first Kahaani Time with Sania Saeed which ToffeeTV hosted with the help of T2F, we gathered another group of 80 parents and children for another interactive storytelling session. A Sunday midday activity, parents and young kids not only listened to a great story told by Sania but also helped her tell a story about Zainab, her brother and a ghost (bhooth).
It’s all a learning experience. We decided that we wanted to include all the children in the gift we had for Sania, so Talea’s brilliant makeshift greenboard and chalk helped all the kids to sign their names into a piece of priceless artwork that we’ll frame and present to our wonderful storyteller. We’ll be uploading a timelapse video showing you how the all the children filled up the board in a few days, so please watch out for that!
We’d like to write a long blog about how grateful we are to all of you for sharing your precious Sunday with us but then we have photographs to share with you, and as the saying goes, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. In our case, when the community comes together and trusts us enough to bring their children along, we couldn’t ask for anything more.
A lot of parents are writing in to ask us how they can support us, so we thought we’d finally tell you. You want to support us? Here’s what you need to do: Spend some time with your children and share the beautiful urdu songs and stories we have on ToffeeTV and found in books across bookstores. And please preserve these books and these memories and share them with us. That’s what you need to do.
Thank you for making our Sunday so fantastic!
