Expressing Talents, Celebrating Creativity

“The children of ATMA Gurukulam are incredibly amazing! How easily they come up on stage and speak! And how polite they are in their interactions!” Dr Deepthi, renowned obstetrician and a well-wisher of ATMA, was bowled over by our children’s performance at the ATMA Gurukulam Day.

She was just one among the many who watched in wonder as the 20 girls at ATMA Gurukulam came out with their creative talents and management skills.

The second ATMA Gurukulam Day was conducted on 2nd February, at the ATMA Gurukulam premises at Puranattukara. The programme is conceptualised as a leadership development opportunity for the children, where in ATMA volunteers and mentors guide the children to organise and conduct the event by themselves.

This year, apart from cultural programmes and experience sharing, there were special donor counters set up and managed by the children. There was a live mehendi (henna designs on the hand) counter, a hand-made gifts counter, a selfie corner and a food specialties counter. Our children, their friends, and ATMA volunteers worked together for more than a week to make beautiful hand-made gifts, fun selfie frames and packed foods for the counters. They also made ‘microgreens’ by growing edible sprouts in old food containers.

The children themselves manned the counters, welcomed the guests and conducted the stage programmes. Ms Shyama (name changed), the first professional graduate from Gurukulam, was honoured for her achievement. The ‘mothers’ who take care of the children were also appreciated on stage for their selfless service.

More than 200 people attended the Gurukulam day function. All of them were mesmerised by the programmes, and touched  by the love and affection that they could closely feel within the ATMA Gurukulam Family. For the children, it was a day they could call completely their own.
