Using Clay to Learn the Alphabet
Using Clay to Learn the Alphabet

In Lokshala, children have begun a new English curriculum designed by Bhoomi College student, Manoj in December. Guided by AIF Fellow, Maitreyi, the children enjoy writing the alphabet and sounding out words. Special techniques are used to increase retain of vocabulary and to make sure that children able to apply phonics to sound out words rather than memorize the words.

Maitreyi has also worked with the Lokshala facilitators to develop ways to engage other senses rather than just sight and hearing to engage children in academic subjects such as Math and English. Children who are just learning to write the alphabet and numbers are given a piece of Play Doh and asked to mold the colorful cool pliable clay into the different characters. Having the opportunity to play like this while learning has left the children looking forward to Lokshala more than ever!

For Holi, children celebrated with a Dry Holi. In recognition of water’s scarcity and eliminate its waste, Dry Holi uses avoids the use of pichkaris, which are like water guns. Instead, the children painted on newspapers and were given small amounts of safe colored powders to smear on each other.

Currently, planning for the summer camp is going on. Exposure visits, hands on activities, and interactives games are planned to impart lessons on leadership, teamwork and child rights. Shaishav's team does door-to-door outreach to spread the word about this exciting event and encourage more children to attend.

From March 17th through the 26th, Parulben attended the Global Social Leadership Summit on Child Advocacy in Beijing, China. Sponsored by the Alibaba group, this invitation only event brought together leaders in child rights from 20 countries to exchange ideas and recognize their achievements. Parulben gave a well recieved presentation on Shaishav's child participatory methods, its programs, and what our Child Rights Training and Resource Center offers.

The event was organized by Beijing Children’s Legal Aid and Research Center. The Center was established in 1999 and received special consultative status with the UN Economic and Social Council in 2011. It is the most influential child protection organization in China. Only one person from each country was selected for this summit and Parulben was India's representative at this prestigious event. Congratulations to Shaishav and Parulben on this great achievement!
