Activities which help children develop life skills
PYDS feels that cultural identity is important in giving a child a long-term sense of stability and place. PYDS works on this through many activities. Cultural activities include nature hikes, classical music shows, Kathak dance classes and Yoga. Children participate in off-campus activities which have included places like Indian Military Academy, Forest Research Institute, Institute of Himalayan Geology, Wildlife Bird Sanctuary, and Agricultural farms. An annual day is hosted to foster a sense of community and showcase the children's talents. They are given guidance to perform in front of an audience. Children are awarded for achievements to encourage them. Parents are invited to the monthly events so they can be proud of their child's development. This program is run with donations received which cover the salary of teachers for activities, musical instruments, and cost of off-campus activities. Your donation will cover the cost of holistic learning of a child.
