Mohanam Cultural Center is organizing every year a summer camp, which takes place during the months of April and May. During this time, when children and youth have theirs summer vacations and many times they spend their time being idle, playing outside and or watching television.
With summer camp we prepare for children and youth every year (cca 180), they got another opportunity to spend their time a little bit more constructive, and in the company of devoted teachers they can learn new things on the fun way.
Although the Mohanam Cultural Center organizes various classes for the children throughout the year, it is still not able to reach all of them. As a result, this camp was created to reach those children and help to establish relationships and community among all the children of the villages.
The purpose of the camp is to educate and promote the importance of tradition and cultural values and creative to the children and youth of Sanjeevi Nagar and Alankuppam villages. The various cultural activities include traditional dance, music, yoga, art, clay, theatre games and environmental awareness.
Previous years showed us that this camp is very beneficial to those children who attend it on many ways, but most of all they are able to develop their unique individuality and creative talents. Consequently they feel empowered, motivated and are able to use their vacation time also to learn, grow and share.
Last few years proved us that we’re on the right track with summer camp, and we would like to continue with it. For that we really need some support form the friends of Auroville and abroad. We kindly request you to extend your monetary support to help us have funding to organize this year summer camp. We are very thankful for your kind support.
