Teachers of Aarohi Bal Sansar recently attended a ' Research Based Training' organised by Madhuvan Ashram, Ramgarh. This training was attended by twelve other schools from the nearby areas.
Some of the highlights of the workshop were
The best part about this week long training was the routine which included Yoga, Meditation, Self Reflection and Shramdaan. It is important for a teacher to revisit and reinforce personal goals everyday, leading to self-growth.
Holistic Development- It is important that a child, not only grows physically but also becomes mentally and emotionally healthy. Hence certain exercises around improving and understanding senses, expressing emotions and building imagination were conducted.
Activity based learning- Making abstract subject like mathematics interesting and relatable through various exercises were taught. Scientific understanding could be done extremely well through facilitating simple experiments from around the child's environment.
As per the government guidelines, we are looking forward to resume classes at Aarohi Bal Sansar from Aug 18, 2021. The team is excited to meet the students.

Yet another monsoon harvest at Aarohi School Farm
By Nidhi Vyas - Project Leader
Aarohi members from different sectors have come together in designing of and sowing seedlings in the school farm and the area around it. The diligence shown by the team in undertaking the tasks are commendable. The team strongly believs that unless kids are involved in the farming work, there is no way to develop their love and respect for nature. Some teachers share their suggestions and also spend time in the school farm, growing herbs and vegetables. The school team is eager to work with kids when the school reopens. One of the lessons learnt in these times of C-19 is 'One who stays closer to the soil, seldom falls sick'. We, at Aarohi dreams of a day when the next generation will stick to their land, their farm, preserving their resources and not having to migrate from their villages.
