Our approach is to involve children in activities that interest, challenge and empower them at all levels.
The Indian government used to regard children as human resources, and its education system was called "Human Resource Development," but with the recent revisions, children are now regarded as equal individuals who should be given freedom and opportunity to explore and holistic education became the topic of discussion.
The term "holistic education" refers to the inclusion of various aspects of life into education, such as livelihood skills, economics, health, and nutrition. It is a forward-thinking educational system.
The Child Life Sanctuary and is taken from the Wild Life Sanctuary, where “sanctuary” refers to a place that offers safety or protection while still allowing people to live their lives freely.
We've made improvements over time, but we're still stuck in rote learning mode. Schools limit children's ability to discover and do the things that truly interest them. As a result, the entire system resembles a zoo, where children have little independence or access to resources and follow the same routine every day. School systems are not set up in such a way that students can develop holistically and children are filled with curiosity in their initial years which needs to be satisfied by introducing the new ways of learning, modern tools of education and experiential learning so that their development can be holistic.
We believe that school is just for students and they should be there for their development but when we see at grassroot level we may find that school is just not a place to go for children, school is a whole concept which involves parents, teachers, caregivers and the whole community. Therefore, the education or learning methods used should be as such so that it can cater to everyone in a very organic maner. It should be inclusive enough where there is no caste, religion, difference in the needs or race system so no one can leave behind. It will foster children to grow in a better place where they have confidence, security and a will to lead a successful life with a sense of sensitivity towards everyone and everything around them.
Another thing that is more prevalent nowadays is gender awareness and gender sensitisation. If we could cater to these issues from the beginning we can actually make an impact and change the current situation.
With the collective support of parents, teachers, caregivers, government and the whole community we can encourage and enable children to play an active and responsible role in the health and development of themselves, other children, their families and communities.
We focus on changing behaviours and practices at the grassroots level and influencing public policy at a systemic level, therefore creating an ecosystem where children are made the nation’s priority.
