Arushi encourages children to participate in various programs held by different organizations in order to promote their integration. This indirectly helps boost their confidence. Regular excursions and out-station trips, visits to museums, parks and participation in sports and creative activities help them discover their abilities.
In order to provide positive role models to children, interaction with celebrities is facilitated. These include sportspersons, film stars, writers, music maestros, scientists and other well known personalities. Children are exposed to interests as varied as travelling and film making.
Arushi organizes regular excursions and trips, where children with disabilities get to see, feel and experience nature in all its glorious forms – the sea, the beaches, the mountains and the waterfalls.
When visiting a new city, children are taken to historical sites, museums, parks and other landmarks. In order to provide them with positive role models, interaction with local celebrities such as sportspersons, film stars, writers, music maestros, scientists and other well-known personalities is facilitated.
Children have been to Kerala, Goa, Chennai, Mysore, Shimla, Chandigarh, Mumbai, Guwahati, Delhi, Bangalore, Meghalaya, Pachmarhi, Mandu, Khajuraho and Sanchi. These trips are organized entirely with the help of volunteers.
Children from Arushi also participate in the annual International Peace Festival where over 500 children with disabilities from other states of India and from the neighbouring countries of Pakistan, Bhutan, Iran, Nepal, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh come together in a unique merging of geographical borders.
