Mandal Canal Trip 2005
19 March, 2005 Birmingham, UK
On Saturday 19th March 2005, the Bal-Balika Karyakars took from Birmingham 40 balaks and balikas on a visit to the canals in the city centre, and gave them the opportunity to take a ride on one of the boats down the canal. For all of the children, it was a unique and fascinating trip as they had the chance to see the history of Birmingham as well as travel on the canals, which was a first for many. Little did they realise that this was also one of the simple ways to strengthen the unity amongst all the Bal-Balikas. Here are some responses from the children after the trip:
“The food was lovely!”
All the parents were very appreciative of all the efforts of the Sanchalaks who organised the trip and took the balaks and balikas to and from the canals.
