BAL VIVIDHA 2008

Bal Vividha is a festival of education celebrating alternative approaches to learning. It promotes the idea that learning can be fun, and that it can take place beyond textbooks questions the perception of education in our society. Organized annually by Comet Media Foundation, it reachs out to those parents, teachers, students and school administrators who are looking for viable and alternative ways to enhance the learning experience of children in formal and non-formal settings.

Vividha, means - one composed of diversity. It is based on the root word for diversity, `vividhata', as the fair celebrates the diverse approaches to development that are promoted by the various NGOs who come to the fair from different places.

The structure of the festival this year, included a Mela , an interactive platform exhibiting children's literature, innovative toys, games and ideas put up by various organizations doing innovative work in education. The CHILDLINE puppet shows highlighted the issue of Child Labour as well as the activities and beneficiaries of CHILDLINE - the various types of children. The CHILDLINE games were a big hit with the children, they returned to play them again and again!! The children thus thoroughly enjoyed themselves and were made aware of the CHILDLINE helpline number 1098.

The Experiential learning workshops meant for Balwadi teachers, primary and secondary teachers, NGO workers, management and policy makers in the field of education and parents attempted to draw on the experiences of participants and illustrated the use of experiments, making of teaching aids, improvising drama, etc. in teaching. The Amphitheatre or Performance Space for puppet shows, street plays, songs, storytelling sessions, slide shows etc. for the visitors, gave the children a platform to display their artistic talents. Finally the Film Festival for children featured a selection of award-winning films for children on a range of topics.

Over the three days, Wilson and M-phasis College volunteers actively supported our team.
