Children's Summer Camp With A Difference

  • You will not be forced to do things you don’t want. YOU fix the time-table. You don’t have to interact with kids (and adults) you don’t like.
  • This activity is “You-Oriented”. We’ll sit and discuss with you individually what you like doing, explore your talents – and accordingly take you through those activities either singly or in small groups. Only fun-loving children allowed. Camp leader: one and only Bharath!

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.

With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!

Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
