Computer Training at Cognizant Technology Solution

Since 2014, Cognizant Technology offers every year a one-month training for 30 to 40 children in computer science and spoken English. 10 to 15 volunteers from the company are looking after the children by creating a child-friendly environment and leading one-to-one courses. Through this program, children can improve their skills in two fields, Computing and English, which are nowadays key assets to get a good position in a company. It is a valuable opportunity for our children to get in touch with employees from a MNC and learn the culture of the corporate world from them.

Oasis leadership training camp at Gujarat

Oasis Movement selects every year 15 to 20 children to enjoy a life camp and leadership training at Gujarat and Bangalore. Children develop their self-confidence, autonomy, soft skills, etc.

The 'Life Camp' is a 2-3 days self-developmental and learning residential camp mostly organized at Oasis Valleys, Gujarat. They involve self-study, observation, understanding and visualizing, practicing through role-plays and taking actions during sessions. Natural environment at Oasis Valleys is very conducive for learning about principles of Life, Self-confidence, Communication skills, Goals of Life, Responsibility, Dreams & Goals, Patriotism and so many other things. Moreover, eco-education tour is an integral part of the camp where students learn about Environment Protection, Trees, Rain Water Harvesting, Waste Management, Organic Farming, Animal Rearing etc.

In the last three years, Sparsha children have actively participated in these camps. It has been an opportunity for them to develop their leadership, take responsibility and they are now more prepared to face the actual situations.

Village visits

Sparsha enables children to go to villages in order to make them understand the rural culture and habits, participate in agricultural activities and festivals. For some of them, it is the first time they have the possibility of travelling out of the city and of escaping its dangers to enjoy the nature in the rural areas.

Theatre Trainings

In collaboration with the Karnataka Folk Dance Team, Sparsha offers theatre trainings to 20-25 children during 10 to 30 days in the villages where they will be immersed in the folk culture. Boys and girls learn folk dance, drama and music from famous artists and play a significant role in developing or adapting the script, designing costumes, etc. At the end of the training, the children perform in several places in Bangalore (private companies and government programs) and the majority of them is also playing in TV shows.

    Boys are performing Kamsale dance and Veera Gase, and girls learn how to perform Dollu Kunitha:
  • Kamsale is a famous folk dance of Karnataka. It is named after the instrument held in the hands of the dancer. The instrument is composed of a cymbal held in one hand and a bronze disc in the other. The main element is the rhythmic clang, which blends with the melodious music of the Mahadeeshvara epic. The instruments, in the course of the vigorous rhythmic beatings, are moved around the body of the dancer in innumerable patterns manifesting both skill and art. In a group movement, the dancer provides the vision of a series of offensive and defensive manoeuvres.
  • Veera Gase is a dance form prevalent in the state of Karnataka. It is a vigorous dance based on Hindu mythology and involves very intense energy-sapping dance movements. Veera Gase is one of the dances demonstrated in the Dasara procession held in Mysore. This dance is performed during festivals and mainly in the Hindu months of Shravana and Karthika.
  • Dollu Kunitha is a famous folk dance of Karnataka, a popular drum dance. In the dance, large drums are adorned with coloured clothes and hang around the necks of the dancers. The songs used in this dance usually have folk and battle fervour. The main emphasis is on quick and light movements of the feet and the legs.

In addition to the dancing, they also learn acting and perform street plays such as Cinderella, and awareness skits about health issues.
