As flowers blossom in the sun....



“As flowers blossom in the sun, children blossom in Joy.”

« Each individual is a special manifestation in the universe; therefore his true path has to be absolutely unique. »


 
Lilaloka, the place of Play (in Sanskrit), offers an educational approach centered on Joy that assists children in becoming the creator of their own lives. Through Joy the child blossoms, finds his path, gains trust in his potentialities. Joy connects us to our inner child, to others, gives meaning to life.  Albert Einstein said "Play is the highest form of research," and play allows the natural learning process to enfold with joy.


The Lilaloka team at present consist of 8 experienced educators who will offer many activities: 12 are already planned and some are already running (visit our Activities and Team members pages to know more about it). The activities are based on free choice and non-judgment, individually or in mixed age groups, respecting each one’s particularity. 
Lilaloka’s activities will benefit all children: schooled, home schooled or differently-abled- and also big children (adults), whatever their age and beyond all categorization.
We want to work in collaboration with AV schools and parents, and we will also share our experience by welcoming and consulting with schools, parents and educators in India.
Lilaloka Phase 1 is currently under construction and is supported by SAIIER (Sri Aurobindo international Institute of Educational Research), Auroville.


We need to urgently raise 9.5 Lakhs Rupees (11875 Euros / 14615 Dollars) in the next in order to finish the roof and complete the raw structure of the building.

Your support at this time is greatly appreciated and truly needed.

If you would like to donate, you can do so by transfer to our account at Financial Service via the Auroville gateway (http://www.auroville.com/donations/  ) by specifying “Lilaloka” in the section “project details – specific Auroville projects”, or by cheque in the name of “Auroville Unity Fund - SAIIER” with an accompanying letter specifying the funds are for Lilaloka.
