The goal is to create a program that offers fun, creative, hands-on sessions for children/adolescents and their parents to learn ways to cultivate healthy and sustainable living habits. The program will be designed and developed in one setting at first, and then offered in many different locations.

A range of hands-on learning sessions, where the focus is on doing rather than lecturing, will be offered. All the activities will be carried out under the theme of ‘caring for self and environment.’ Few sample activities are: container gardening (environment), sprouting and nutrition (self), waste segregation (environment), and mindfulness (self).  

People with expertise in the various areas of the program will be invited as consultant facilitators of the hands-on learning sessions. They will be helped by volunteers to run the sessions.

Earnings will be from the fees charged for participating in the learning sessions.

Target Location :

Initially KTM Valley. Then other parts of Nepal.

Target Audience :

Children/adolescents and their parents, volunteers.

Scope :

Benefit :

Participants of the program will learn and develop simple but lasting skills for life that will help them care for their own health and wellbeing and the wellbeing of their immediate environment.

The joint participation by children and their parents (guardians) will provide an opportunity for developing a shared inspiration for living a more healthy and sustainable life.

Awareness and hands-on experience of healthy habits among both children and their parents increases the likelihood that such lifestyle changes are implemented in their homes.
