Sri Sathya Sai Balvikas – The Only Ray of Hope for Mankind
(An Inspiring Talk by Smt. KAMALA PANDYA, Deputy National Coordinator for Balvikas on 6 January 2018)
It is essential to train the Balvikas gurus so that they understand the purpose for which the Balvikas was started by Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Students are categorised into three groups based on their age and the content varies for each group. The Balvikas gurus need to be trained for each group. They become the learners first, before they start imparting the value lessons to the children. Apart from having a thorough knowledge of the syllabus, the gurus should be versatile and adopt different tools and resources to take the message to the children. The training programme equips the teachers with the skills to create and sustain the interest in the minds of Balvikas children in the Balvikas classes. The training aims to transform the gurus to become inspiring tools and role models for the children.
