PROMOTING INCLUSION IN EDUCATION

The ultimate goal of education is concerned with an individual’s effective participation in society and of reaching his/ her full potential. Inclusion in education is an essential prerequisite to enable this.

We are working directly with children in special schools, mainstream schools, government schools and inclusive schools across the country. Our aim is to create spaces for children that would allow them to bring up questions, share feelings, reflect on thoughts, and discuss self-image, events in the world, relationships and biases in a non-threatening creative manner. It is important to be deliberate about fostering in the young a sense of self-worth, a sense of possibility, a sense of community, a sense of empowerment, a sense of self directed learning, and above all a sense of self wonder and aspirations.

This is essential if we hope to create leaders who take forward learning and change to the world, with the freedom, skills, discipline and accountability that it entails.
