Taking inspiration from the Tree of Life


On 2nd February 2019, the Social Solidarity Department of New Acropolis (Khar Branch) led a volunteering activity called “Tree of Life” with 7th grade students of the Pali-Chimbai Municipal School in Bandra (Mumbai).

Through imagination exercises, movement and art, the activity served a valuable opportunity for members to share the symbolic meaning of the “Tree of Life” by enabling each child to reflect on their own lives. Drawing parallels with a tree, the children were guided to identify their own roots: their identity, values, and education. The trunk was regarded as one’s growth through experiences, acquired skills and abilities. And the branches represented dreams, aspirations and goals.
