At Mrida, we are focusing on the inner and external well-being of each child. Recognizing that malnutrition was a terrible scourge in this region, we started the community shelter home last year where we accommodated and fed 40 children. These children are participants of our sports programs and/or study at Riverside. Parents of these children provide food grain and we supplement the diet with vegetables, eggs and fish. For inner well-being, we are drawing inspiration from our own traditional culture of yoga. We have introduced upa yoga from Class 1 onwards that is part of daily practice for the children and teachers. Every year, we dedicate one month to celebrations that involve music, dance and theatre. Children sing bhajans, sufi songs and other devotional songs in the school every day.
