The life at school

Healthy development for body, mind and soul.

At present the Ananya Niketanam School has 15 staff members.

The children learn at a very early age to take on responsibility through various tasks. For example, they wash and dry their clothes themselves, help in the kitchen, with shopping and with many other everyday tasks that have to be done. 

The children practice discipline, participate in many community activities, but also have enough freedom to develop their own creativity. In this way, their personality and self-esteem can unfold optimally.

However, the best reference of this educational concept is the children themselves. One can witness how children from very difficult family backgrounds with partly traumatic experiences, blossom within a very short time and transform into happy, self-confident and upright young people.
