Learning - a way of life

This week we experienced math in living, while we also continued with maths club - Four meals a day, On average 25 people at campus. 60% reaching late for the meals or finishing late. That makes it 15 each meal, 60 each day, 300 each week (5 days a week) - hmmm the number looks BIG! On average 5 people in clean up, 3 out of 5 comes late, that makes it 12 people in a day not showing up in time for meals clean up, in week this number is 60 (12 x 5).

Making Breakfast

Making a meal is unknown process - often it reaches to our kids plate and then they just need to consume it. “Make your own breakfast”, was the announcement and the platter was displayed with choices - all we needed to do was to make breakfast for our own breakfast”.

And that’s all! Rest is all your imagination

Water Walk

Can a campus teach? Water walk at Aarohi is nothing but understanding water and sanitation system at Aarohi. Where does the water comes to the campus and where does it goes? Water at the campus comes from the bore well and goes back to the ground through plants - in the process it travels to our tank, to our toilets, to our bathrooms, to our kitchen washing, to our water treatment system ... and then to our kitchen garden and then to the ground back and the cycle starts.

Sense of Space

The measurement are not only about centimeters and inches or finding the conversion. It is much more joyous than just converting inches to feet and centimeters and meters.

Fetstivity in October

Had a wonderful festival celebration this week.

Festivals are one of the most enjoyable celebration at Aarohi - brings different ideas, beliefs and ideas together. 
One announcement "dance practice on a song" led to few people coming together and practice began. A dance drama was prepared within few hours of practice. 
Together food was cooked, served and we all ate together. And a mytholgy story made our celebration alive.

Our son Dhrupad, now 13yrs old has never been to any structured education. Often that also lead to surprise for others “then how is he learning maths and science?”
