Atmachetna came into being with two fundamental purposes - firstly, to acknowledge that all children are multitalented and are unique each having his/her own gifts and qualities in them; which can be developed and grown in them to become individuals who are well rounded, empowered to take charge of the world with far more confidence and compassion. And secondly, that the society, at large, should and can play a more involved and positive role in nurturing this new generation, with less pressure in their mind and with more happiness in their lives.
