  • My class of Grade 3 children is called the "Responsible Champions" class and we have built in values and mindsets into everyday activities of the class. The Dharma Jar is one such idea that the kids really love.

    The responsible champions can donate up to 1 rupee per day into the "Dharma Jar". At the end of every month, we open the jar, count the money collected and buy food and other things for those who live on the streets of Dharavi while going on a field trip.

    My class children come from a really low income community but they also need to thank God for the blessings - they have a home and parents to feed them whereas the homeless have nothing. This simple idea is helping kids develop empathy and understand perspectives in life.
