In coordination with the work to begin on the NHE Diploma Programme for Elementary grades, AMGK is beginning a project to produce books and encourage programs and activities related to the specialties of NHE in the areas of:
YES – Yoga Education in Schools or Astaunga Yoga STUVOL – Student Volunteers or Service and Dynamic Leadership ELF – Earth Lover’s Family or Sustainable Ecology SPROUT – School PROUT (Progressive Utilization Theory) or Sustainable Socio-economics
Work on each area has already begun. The books will be by age group – Kindergarten, Elementary, Junior High, etc. Many of you have a wealth of material in these areas that you have created, assembled and successfully applied over the years, and we are asking you to share this material either by contributing to these AMGK publications, by creating publications from your own school and submitting them to AMGK for endorsement and distribution or by sending articles to Gurukula Network.
