We have carried out several play workshops across 7 low-cost schools in Chennai, Lucknow, Auroville and Gurgaon. We are soon starting our workshops in Mumbai. These workshops focus on using play, games and activities as a medium of learning life skills. Our workshop module consists of a defined number of workshops carried out with the same set of child over a time period. Our current curriculum has been designed for two themes (1) Holistic Development of all life-skills (2) Gender Sensitivity and Harmony
Here are a few captured moments:
According to article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, “children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities”. The Government of India ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child on 12 November 1992. This right is often referred to as Right to Play.
Project Khel India is a play movement started with the objective of promoting right to play in India. There is overwhelming evidence that play has significant positive impact on the self-awareness, self-esteem, and self-confidence of children. It also improves their physical and mental health. This not only helps them become better individuals in future, it also helps build a healthy and peaceful society.
