Every year during hot summer time, Gerizim organize a week-long activity on Holistic Child Development to reach out both normal & special children, during which we arrange for a healthy interaction/integration of Special children with the normal children outside.
The sole aim of this effort to engage children indoor profitably on receiving life' values on moral ethics to shape up their personalities for good. The entire event is tailored on practical activities & children-friendly. A special curriculum was prepared to suit to their interests.
Themed on " FRUITING", 5 moral values ( Joy, Peace, Patience, Faith & Self-control ) were imparted through :
Stage performance Live demonstration Practical illustrations Music Action songs, Group work Choreography, LED screen projection Quiz Craft work, Fun and games Brain-storming Story-telling Personal Counseling
Around 300 children gathered & attended the sessions cheerfully. Discipline & orderliness was maintained throughout. Nearly 30 volunteers helped at this Program. It was a pleasing sight to see children with their chest badges participating various activities.
05 different fruits were supplied to the children each day ( Orange, Grapes, Watermelon, Apple, Mango ) - each fruit to signify a specific function to correlate with the theme to be apt. Children were taught to obey their parents, teachers & elders. Knowledge-acquiring session has motivated children to be hard-working as well.
To add beauty, a Magic Show, Tree Planting & Balloon Activity were conducted to arouse their cheers. Daily noon meal, morning snacks & refreshments were also provided free of cost all. We have given small gifts to every child to appreciate their presence & keen involvement. Certificate of Merit / Participation was awarded
A sizable amount of money was invested. We have spent it joyfully hoping that one day or the other, this Program would yield lasting results in children.
