Gopal's Fun School

Overview

Gopal Fun School is a weekend program for urban kids. Every parent has an earnest desire to give their child the best by fulfilling their physical, emotional, social and spiritual needs. GFS recognizes the importance of these priorities and equips the kids with life long skills and attitudes, which will enable them to make positive and outstanding contributions in all aspects of life.

The Need

Modern society has discovered that, beyond physical needs, human beings also have emotional and spiritual needs. Parents today are baffled and pained to see their children succumb to stress, depression, addiction, violence, delinquent behaviour and even suicide. Moreover, they often have little respect for their parents and elders, and hold traditional moral and spiritual values in disregard.

Studies confirm that a child bereft of spiritual training easily falls prey to bad habits. A spiritually guided child, on the other hand, is well equipped to counter harmful influences and confidently face the stresses and tensions of modern life.

How it Works

Through a lively blend of art, stories, quiz, dramas, games, puppet and multimedia shows a child is exposed to spiritual culture and wisdom. The sessions include prayers, meditation and yoga. In its sweetest form, GFS imparts holistic education to children in development of their character and personality.

The workshops encourage the development of basic values and talents. A simple gesture of offering flowers to the altar, cultivates the value of giving and not withholding. It evolves in to a spirit of compassion and sharing, and a selfless concern for others.
