Founded in 1982, mainly to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence among children and carry the message of ANUVRAT beyond the frontiers of India, ANUVIBHA has steadily grown in size and stature. In view of ANUVIBHA’s contribution to a culture of peace among children through its non-violence education programme, it was approved for association with UN-DPI in 1998. Under its international wing, ANUVIBHA has organized nine international conferences on peace and nonviolent action and has developed a rich global network of peace-loving institutions and individuals.

ANUVIBHA is headquartered at Rajsamand, 65 kilometers north of Udaipur where it maintains Children’s Peace Palace overlooking Aravali hills and Rajsamand lake. Activities at this centre provide children with an opportunity for natural growth and all-round development in an open environment free from fear, burden, and binding. Thousands of children have participated in these activities in last two decades.


ANUVRAT Balodaya

Anuvrat Balodaya believes that children imbibe the spirit of the environment around them. Children’s Peace Palace is a laboratory for this purpose where presentations in various galleries and chambers are available in different forms in an environment conducive to moral growth of children, that arouses their curiosity and tries to satisfy it through various child centric activities. The principle passed on child psychology attracts children naturally, enables them to adopt mentally and becomes a forceful medium for inspiring them to take to peace, nonviolence, ethics and good conduct.


CHILDREN’s Peace Palace

Children’s Peace Palace, the Headquarters of ANUVIBHA is a centre for various activities for the all-round development of children. It is situated on a hillock near the renowned Rajsamand lake. The site was selected keeping in mind the fact that children need a conducive psychological environment for learning. Located in the lap of nature, the centre has been developed during the last 25 years in such a way that a child who visits the place once is fascinated with it so much that he does not want to go back home.

BALODAYA Galleries @ CPP

To let the children seek inspiration in several ways from the life and character of great iconic personalities there are a couple of galleries developed at the Children’s Peace Palace. In a beautiful oval shaped audio visual room, named MAHAPURUSH JEEVAN DARSHAN, documentary films on great personalities from various walks of life are shown to them. Through a constructive dialogue, followed by the show, children focus their attention on their great lives and learn to emulate these ideas in their own lives. There is another gallery MAHAN BALAK KAKSH which depicts examples of such children who have shown great courage in challenging circumstances. JHILMIL MINAR is another place where children learn about great personalities through their photographs along with brief description. If they wish to study in detail, books on their lives are available in the library.

To arouse a natural interest in various cultures and develop a sense of ‘unity in diversity’ among children, CPP offers a number of opportunities. A 200 feet long wall, named BHARAT JODO BHITTI, depicts murals of folk dances from different Indian cultures. Besides this, DOLLS MUSEUM houses dolls from different parts of the world to show the cultural diversity with an enchanting way.

ANUVRAT is a great philosophy of self purification and if children learn about this in early age, it becomes a foundation for their successful and peaceful life. ANUVRAT DEERGHA is basically an art gallery with around 30 paintings on value based lifestyle. Based on these paintings various activities have been crafted in such a way that children learn about the importance of human values and get attracted to them naturally. Along with this, practical sessions of JEEVAN VIGYAN, yoga and meditation help them learn practical ways to imbibe these values.

Democratic values have become an important part of our social order. If children are introduced to its importance and functioning at an early age, it will serve a great purpose of the purification of the democratic system. The children participating in the camp have their own mock parliament sessions and through it they get basic information about democratic values and the functioning of democratic systems.

Balodaya Library has a rich collection of books on various subjects related to children. It has books in 12 Indian languages besides those in Hindi and English. Children from various states and different linguistic background feel quite at home at the Children’s Peace Palace, specially when they get books to read in their mother tongue. In addition, the library subscribes to a number of newspapers and magazines so that children can get the latest information on current events.



ANUVRAT Movement aims at social and national transformation through individual transformation and its foundation is child development. Childhood is the most appropriate stage for personality development. ANUVIBHA is doing this quintessential work through ANUVRAT Balodaya.

Children’s Peace Palace is a great creation. I understand, in Balodaya model practiced at the Children’s Peace Palace, the emphasis is made on enhancing children’s emotional competence which is possible only when children stay and spend some time in a special environment created for them. I am very happy to know that this model is based on child psychology. This is most valuable and worthy of emulation by other schools.

I give more importance to this centre than the Disneyland of California which have costed billions of dollors. The reason, in the Disneyland you will find only entertainment but here there is quality at every corner. I would love to call it the Children’s Peace Palace.
