Tiger and Goat Board Game
Play this Indian traditional board game to reduce your children’s screen time and to promote local games.
The Lambs and Tigers Game locally referred to as the Game of Goats and Tigers is a strategic, two-player board game played in South India. The game is asymmetric in that one player controls three tigers and the other player controls up to 15 lambs/goats. The tigers ‘hunt’ the goats while the goats attempt to block the tigers’ movements.

One of the main reasons, children are behind is because of neglect of parents. Both parents who are engaged in daily wage labour work, completely ignore children’s care. On top of that, children have witnessed domestic violence which causes them anxiety and difficulty sleeping. 80% of children going to government schools are facing this issue.
Through our volunteer-led program, we are intervening in the following areas:
