For the past two years, Namuna Bari has been conducting different educational workshops and activities to the children, youth and staff of Bhimphedi, Balmandir. These workshops are a way to broaden and foster their knowledge in agriculture and involve them in Namuna Bari Project.
From 28th December, a three-day workshop was conducted among the primary level children from grade U.K.G to two of Balmandir. The workshop was conducted among 12 children on the importance of consuming green vegetables. The main objective of the workshop was to make the children explore and know the importance of consuming green vegetables grown in the kitchen garden. Since the children were too young, the workshop was designed in a basic form in order to make them understand easily. Throughout the workshop different art and audio visual resources were used such as videos, powerpoint presentations, coloring and songs. The children were also introduced to new vegetables to develop their vocabularies.
The workshop helped the children to upgrade their knowledge on green vegetables and their benefits. On the other hand, the workshop also led to know the children’s choice of vegetables. These kinds of educational workshops will be continued in the coming days as well.
The Namuna Bari project is possible thanks to the support of the City Council of Montornès del Valles, and has been possible during 2018-2020 thanks to the support of Ateneu del Món and the City Council of Sant Quirze del Vallès:
