Children from higher classes are taught to make crafts from eco friendly and recyclable material which in turn creates a sense of responsibility in their minds for this planet. Volunteers visit the school regularly and teach creative work using discarded and unused material.
Examples are stationery items from old wedding invitations, gift bags using old newspapers and art work using discarded tailor bits of fabric.
Craft items are sold at Nachiketa Tapovan, Hyderabad throughout the year and
craft fairs are held at corporate campuses like Amazon Inc and clubs like
Jubilee Hills International Cultural Centre.
In addition, Vidya Mandir conducts annual Rakhi sale and Diya Sale for Rakshabandhan and Diwali respectively.
What's more, all sale proceeds directly benefit the children and their education at Vidya Mandir.Sale proceeds from Diya making and Rakhi making are directly deposited in their personal bank accounts.
If you are interested in conducting a Vidya Mandir craft sale at your venue and encourage and support the children, please contact us for details.
Children naturally love art : painting, drawing, music and the theater. By exposing children to arts and crafts early on, they learn to think creatively, with an open mind. They also learn to express feelings, with or without words.
Creating artful work builds confidence in the young ones which is key especially because of the societal layers they come from. Because there is not just one right way to make art, every child can feel pride in his or her original artistic creations.
