No water, No teacher ,No children at Jawhar Balbhawan Mandi....Sorry Children
Shockingly!!! play ground ,music room,auditorium,painting room,library, everything is there in place !!!!! But there are no children at Jawahar Balbhawan Mandi Road south Delhi.
Bureaucracy is taking a toll of children's creativity ,talent and play. You can see children on road side playing instead of playing or attending creativity classes at Balbhawana.Bal Mandi Road .
Bhalbhawan has been offering many creative activities related to science, creative & performing arts, photography, physical activities for many decades. Bal Bhavan is an Government run institution supposed to enhance the creative potential of children by providing them various activities, opportunities and common platform to interact, experiment, create and perform according to their age, aptitude and ability .
It also aimed at providing barrier-free environment with immense possibilities of innovation, minus any stress or strain.This year no teacher has been appointed for summer camps till date and water shortage is on rampant. In previous years,more than two thousand children from more than twenty villages and slums in south Delhi and used to attend more than twenty activities....A big Sorry to children this year..
On 3rd February 1973 this village unit of Bal Bhavan was inaugurated by Suit. Indira Gandhi as Jawahar Bal Bhavan Mandi at the present 3.75 Acre land provided by the gram Panchayat of Mandi. This rural centre caters to the needs of children from villages of Mandi, Jaunapur, Gadaipur, Sultanpur, Manglapuri, Gwalpahari, Bandhwari, Bairumpur, Baas, Aya Nagar, Ghitorni, Chhattarpur, Maidan garhi, Rajpur, Satbari, Chandanhola, Fatehpur Beri, Dera, Bhatti Mines and Neb Sarai.
Activities of this Bal Bhavan include Physical Education, Art and Craft, Tailoring, wood craft and Clay Modeling. Mandi Bal Bhavan has greatly aroused the interest of village children and recently activities of photography and computer's have been added on popular demand.
