This program aims to give students free access to a curriculum that is creative, joyful, participatory and life related and a wide range of topics and experiences that are beyond the academic system, in order to motivate them on the manifold avenues open to them in the world.
Most of the schools where our students are studying do not have playgrounds, materials for sports or creativity, and some schools do not even have basic facilities like toilets and safe drinking water. Mostly children are trained only in rote learning without space for creativity and logical thinking. This results in poor quality education for the students and lack of life skills for their future.
AVAG’s Summer Camp program is a five-week summer initiative for students from the bio-region, and consists of supplementary education programs and a series of activities and exposure
visits for overall development.
The camp is aimed at bringing awareness towards topics like Gender, Caste, Society, Child Rights Violence and Sexual Abuse, Reproductive Health, Environment, Hygiene ,Nutrition and Yoga. Furthermore, these five weeks entail activities to improve the youth’s life skills like communication, leadership, critical thinking and teamwork. The goal is to support them to realise their strengths and to create a save environment for them to affirm their opinions and values.
