The école இllam programme has collaborated with many organizations for short-term programmes, engaging with their beneficiary groups in an online format. We use different art forms during our work, including storytelling, dance, movement, drama, music, visual arts, etc.

10-hour programmes are designed, catering to the needs of the beneficiary group, and with an aim to promote psychosocial and emotional well-being. Our collaborations include work with children from slum areas, children with special needs with parents serving in the Army, and grassroots organizations across the country. Read more about some of these collaborations.

Umang Special Care Centre, Alwar

The team at Snehadhara Foundation worked with 7 children at the Umang Special Care Centre at Alwar using the methodology of the arts, with children with special needs belonging to military families. The focus was to give them an experience of the multi-arts methodologies of music, art, dance, drama and play as a pilot model being implemented in a one-of-its-kind space for children with disabilities from military families. The engagement involves three visits to Alwar to conduct these face-to-face sessions, and is a continuation of our work with the children through two terms of the école இllam programme.
