Celebrating Independence day, Dussera, Onam, Diwali, Christmas were part of our institution which we do every year. Along with these, we also celebrate Teachers’ Day and acknowledge their effort and contribution for our children. All teachers received gifts and lunch was arranged for all. The special touch was given by the vocation training unit students who made chocolates and candles and made special packing with teachers day message for their loving teachers.
In the year 2018-19, for the first time Akshadhaa Foundation started Sports day as annual event. Throughout the year we had in-house and outdoor sports sessions where we make them learn and participate in different solo and group games to bring their alertness, competitive attitude and group spirit. We work with simple yet creative games to target those skills.
This time we had designed our annual sports day with such games along with drills, march past, exercise, aerobics, talent hunt, relay race and more !
Akshadhaa Foundation celebrated International Disability Day at ANZ office, Manyata Tech Park. Some of our Vocation training unit students facilitated by therapists and trainers participated to create experiential learning environment to sensitize the employees about the challenges and how structured activities, predictability and broken down tasks help them achieve set of work skill. Inclusive carnival games were a hit over there.
Diwali Celebration at School. All were busy to make the walls, notice boards, floor bright and more colourful with paints, flowers, glitters, craft papers. Happy Diwali and all the best wishes to all friends, families from the entire Akshadhaa team.
It was a quite an active cheerful morning for all. Children were very excited. Dads were little puzzled, little worried, little concerned. They all had shown such wonderful spirit making the day memorable.
Inclusive Carnival at Dell, Domlur premise. Lot of engagement, knowledge sharing, experiential learning and games for the students and the participants. Thanks to Rachana and Sarvanan for all the help to run the event smoothly.
The idea behind the event is to sensitize the mainstream community with differently abled children through play and fun filled games. In this full day event, the members put lot of effort and initiative to make the children meaningfully engaged while most of them are having language and communication challenges. The fun for the Volunteers is no way lesser than the children. Quite an eventful day I must say !
Our students had eventful few hours with the students of The Foundation School, Gunjur who visited us this week. Sensetizing the young minds about the different challenges and abilities of Autism and Intellectual Disability is our constant effort that we continue with different schools.
Movie day was planned at Akshadhaa to give real experience of buying ticket, checking seat number, watching movie together with friends and having fun. Interval time surprised us, how they waited in a queue to buy snacks and drinks. There was no grabbing from rack, not from other friends not even wanting to have it first. The idea was to build up social behaviour, understanding and controlling emotions in a social get together. No anxiety was expressed and all sat for the movie which went for almost 1hour 40 minutes. This is not a miracle, this is relentless working with structure and conviction "YES WE CAN! "
