Dr. P.S. Senthil Kumar, Occupational Therapist at The Banyan, facilitated a workshop by Mr. Balaji on phenyl making at the Shelter for the Homeless in Doomingkuppam, Santhome, Chennai, for the clients of the Shelter and of The Banyan’s Day Care Centre.

Initially, Mr. Balaji demonstrated the process of making phenyl to all our clients.  Then, he asked the clients to individually demonstrate what they had learnt.   Many of the clients were able to recollect the entire process.  All the clients expressed delight that they had a learnt a new skill and thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.   Dr. Senthil plans to make this a routine activity at The Banyan and hopes to produce enough phenyl to meet the daily phenyl needs at the different projects.

Following the workshop, Mr. Hari, our coordinator at the Shelter for the Homeless, organised lunch for all the clients.  Once lunch was done, all the clients were taken to the beach to relax before heading back. Without the coordinating efforts of Dr. Senthil, Mr. Balaji, Mr. Hari, and Ms. Punitha, the Day Care Centre’s coordinator, this event would not have been as successful as it was.
