Bala vihar every sunday

What is Balavihar?

Balavihar is a weekly class for children of primary school age (KG to Year 6). Classes take place under the supervision of trained teachers (Sevaks). The aim of Balavihar is to help children bloom, grow, and inculcate values through fun-filled activities. Balavihar enhances the overall development of the personality of a child at all levels — physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual.

HTGFW Vision for Balavihar: “To help children learn values with fun, to delight like the moon and shine like the sun!”

"All the activities in a Balavihar class or camp are specially designed for children. The primary aim is to teach    children to look at life as a game. Further, they must understand that even though life is viewed as a sport, every sport has rules, and discipline is important; just because it’s a game, it does not mean we can skip the rules".

The Balavihar Curriculum

Classes are arranged by school year. Classes start and end with Sanskrit prayers. Each class has a carefully designed and prepared syllabus. The syllabus includes chanting, bhajans, stories of devotion and moral values, interactive   discussions, creative games, and arts and crafts. Classes run for 90 minutes and run once a week during the school term.

Balavihar strives to achieve many of outcomes for its students:

·       To give them a healthy foundation to build their life.
