The first Ahimsa ki Paathsala was held on 24 September 2017 at the Chintamani Parshwanath Jain Mandir, Ghatkopar. The sessions conducted were interactive and loaded to the brim with activities for the children.
Across both the workshops, the children from ages 8 to 12 years learnt about kindness to animals, human beings and the whole planet. The highlight of the programme were interactive sessions and skits that provided insights into the cruelty meted out to silkworms and animals. They were also taught about the perils of using plastic and about saving our resources. The response from the children was very heartening. At the end of the workshop, each child was given a small plant to take care of.
The awareness session was conceptualised and conducted by Vidya Anand. The programmes were well executed by Mayavi Khandelwal, Falguni, Pratiksha Porwal and Rajat Wadhwa. The event was supported by Heena Doshi, Sagar Doshi, Samrat Doshi and Mansi Doshi.
