The organisers of this class say that some of these children get burdened with responsibilities from early childhood on, leading to them missing out on just being children. The organisers also feel that this is paramount for their overall psychological development.

Every Saturday, different types of art practices are taught based on the core values of patience, sharing, gratitude, teamwork, respect, cleanliness, and equality.
