JGS 2019: A RACE AGAINST TIME

The Karyavahi Samiti would like to invite all baalako aged 10 and above to join us for an incredibly diverse, once in a lifetime adventure!

Jeevan Ghadtar Shibir (literally meaning 'Life Moulding Camp') is a four day camping trip which aims to encourage independence, and provides a unique life experience in which baalako engage in a variety of activities in a safe environment.

JGS will provide baalako with an opportunity to learn about the importance of leadership, teamwork and self-control as they tackle challenging but thrilling activities, whilst developing their confidence to try new things and develop key skills which will help them throughout their life.

'Have a look at last year's JGS video to see what we do! 

This year our theme is ‘A Race Against Time.’ We will be exploring how to spend our limited time on this planet, working towards a better future for everyone. Take a look at our first promo video by clikcking on this LINK

It's a great opportunity to meet our our bhaio and beno from both London Kendras, make memories and create friendships that will last a lifetime.
