The secret of change is to focus all of
your energy not on fighting the old,
but on building the new.
This program runs through the academic year with daily interventions for an hour a day in each of the schools we engage with.
Kids are growing up on a digital playground
and no one is on recess duty.

This program seeks to introduce primary school children to basic computer literacy. The sessions allow children to play with and learn from easy use software and applications. The applications are also based on the OBLF curriculum and allow the student to use speech recognition, text typing, etc to enable innovative learning experiences. This technology based intervention has been integrated into classrooms along with the Headstart program sessions conducted by the women coordinators.
Here is to strong women,
May we know them,
May we be them,
May we raise them.
Enter into children's play and you will find
where their minds, hearts and souls meet.
Virginia Axline, Pioneer of Play Therapy
We find delight and beauty in the
happiness of children that makes the
heart too big for the body.
Ralf Waldo Emerson
THE JOY OF GIVING
An annual – and very important – event for us is the “Joy of Giving” week, or “Daan Utsav” as it is known now. Daan Utsav is a festival of philanthropy that aims at engaging people through “cts of giving” – money, time, resources andskills – spanning across the corporate, NGO and government sectors, schools, colleges and the general public. OBLF is a part of this endeavour and raises funds, resources and gifts for the primary school beneficiaries.
VOICES FROM THE GROUND
Stories have immense power and are able to communicate things that lie way beyond the spoken or printed words used to tell them. We would like to showcase the incredible journey of our women coordinators and students of the adopted schools!
