    Description

    Garden of Light - A musical by eighty special chilren of V-Excel Educational Trust. This musical will depict the way in which the beautiful mother Earth converts into lifeless dull grey owing to materialism. And what is done next to revive the nature.

    The prepartions have begun. While eighty of them have been rehearsing the musical, there is another group of special students working backstage. These students are working to create life size rocks, castle doors and other props required for the musical. Not only that they have also been deciding on the design of the costume for the eighty who will be on stage. Their is a whole lot of enthusiasm and celebration in the air.

    With all these preparations, everything would go down the drain if we do not support the children with the best of sound and light quality. 

    Need of the hour - Funds to buy materials such as wires, wire mesh, wood, clothes etc for building the props and costumes. Funds to arrange for the sound and light system. Well! We do not spend on event managers. Everything is planned and created by our teams in-house.

    How do the events of these nature help the children?

    Annual day at V-Excel takes place every alternate year where all the seven units of our organization come together to make this event a successful one.

    Annual day is not just an event. It is an attempt to allow the children to participate in the process of learning. Though we began conducting this event twelve years ago as something through which we could put up a show for parents, we have been constantly trying to find out what do the children learn through this event. After nearly 5 productions in the last twelve years, we have managed to find some answers which are:

    • The preparation sessions (around two months) are pivotal in enhancing learning of practical life lessons and living experiences of children.
    • Our productions are prop rich, musically and visually appealing, with thematically deep and thought provoking content. This helps us in teaching concepts to the children in a unique way. Moreover, since there is no compromise on the quality of material for props and costumes, of sound and light set up, nearly real experience is created for the children. Through this, they actually take part in a rich fantasy filled world which would be otherwise difficult to recreate for them.  
    • After the two to three months we have observed that every child in the school comes out richer, more aware and some clearly bringing out talents that we never saw before
    • It helps in 'normalising' the children and very often we see an increase in speech, understanding and interpersonal relationships after this period of two months.

    These findings above not only encourage us to continue conducting the Annual day without an end, it encourages us to do it bigger and better each and every time.

    About V-Excel Educational Trust

    V-Excel is a non-profit, non-discriminatory social organization committed to the cause of children and young adults with developmental disabilities such as Autism, Mental Retardation, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders (ADD/ADHD), and Dyslexia. V-Excel is founded in 2001 by Dr. Vasudha Prakash, a doctorate in Special Education from the U.S. and Masters in Clinical Psychology, who returned to India to set up a model center.

    Our mission is to make a difference in the world of disability. Our core philosophy is that every child has a potential to learn and the entire focus is hence on abilities, not disabilities. We firmly believe that disability is just one small component of the child or the adult under question and our attempt is always to look at the whole individual.
