Background/Project: Children are not just little adults. They go through typical stages of growth—intellectually, emotionally, and socially—on their way to becoming adults. Sometimes we may think that children are too young to understand a gospel principle or that we really don’t have much influence with our older children.
Developing a child’s personality is an essential element in today’s competitive world. A developed personality is definitely a key to success. Though developing personality in children is a slow and steady process, it enhances their confidence in future.
Developing a child’s personality holds a great importance, as it brings a lot more changes in the way the child behaves, deals or accepts a situation, or life itself. And then who as a parent would like to see lot of personality traits in a child. A child with a developed personality can stay socially viable, will be able to impress his audience, interact better, handle situations with great ease, have a positive approach towards each and every situation in life, and handle stress better.
In the present context in Nepal, the school and family focus on getting good marks in exams. However, it is not focused on exploring the hidden talents of children and develop them for future. Children have less opportunities for those. This project aims to dig out the hidden talents and develop different skills so that they can perform better in the future.
• To dig out child’s hidden talents, boost their confidence and improve their communication skills and language.
• To develop the ability to enhance one’s scope of knowledge by widening the boundaries and few hobbies or brushing of particular skills
• To help child get over from any of his/her weaknesses and bring a positive attitude in the child’s way of thinking and living.
Work and activities:
• Prepare and conduct the research to dig out child’s hidden talents and interest.
• Organize sessions of different life skills like communication, public speaking, leadership and so on.
• Prepare and implement different sessions and activities to improve children’s ability.
