2009: A program was held on Jan 31 2009 in a shelter for orphan children of 11 – 13 yrs. Their fathers were killed by the maoists and their mothers were killed by the army.
VTSeva volunteers, supplied educative materials to the orphans with short poetic stanzas and verses on how to improve one’s knowledge and wisdom. The intention was to instill self confidence and willpower in the minds of the young children who were mentally traumatized when their parents were ruthlessly killed. They distributed small easy-to-say slogans suitable for the children like: “Sancho Bola”, “Bhagawan Lai Sadhai Samjha” i.e. Speak Truth, Always Have Faith in Self etc.
Jan 31 was celebrated as ‘Vasanta Panchami’, and Sriman Nutan Dev Khanal personally handed over small gifts like pencils and stationary to the kids . VTSeva volunteers taught the children a few Yoga techniques like, Pranayamand other meditative excercises to keep their minds calm and pleasant.
The volunteers donated three buckets to the shelter to be used as dustbins. Later that day, they distributed food for all the children.
Another interaction program, with lecturers of a campus In Nuwakot district 90 k.m. south west of kathmandu, called “Infection or Encroachment to our culture ” was conducted. 25 persons took part in this interaction to discuss how to preserve and protect ancient culture and traditions that promoted goodness and righteousness among people.
