We have three main areas of action:
Long-term survivors are educationally disadvantaged because of the loss of school time during treatment. We work to bridge this gap in their education while they go through treatment at the hospital ward, so they can fulfil their academic potential and are able to return to the right grade level after treatment. Our teachers (both staff and volunteers) provide support for primary and secondary education according to the school curriculum, teaching younger students in groups and older students one-on-one.
Young cancer survivors post 5 years of treatment are eligible for applying for Scholarships for continuing education under our Samiksha Scholarships Program (SSP) launched in March 2018
We conduct activities known to be beneficial for the well-being of the children and their caregivers, such as yoga, meditation, art therapy, and creative visualisation, with the support of volunteers trained in these skills.
Support Through Play and Creative Activities
Creative activities such as art, craft, pottery, and singing, games are conducted and overseen often.
We conduct birthday parties on Saturdays of each month, with different activities ranging from singing groups to magic shows. These events are carefully run to be entertaining for the children and interactive without being too overwhelming or physically demanding, under the supervision of doctors and medical staff.
