Programmes

Our programmes aim to empower people in key areas of the society. The main guideline that underlines each of these activities can be described by the quote of Mahatma Gandhi, ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’. Programmes are designed mainly to focus on personal leadership which is a cornerstone for a service-based leadership. The necessity of being rooted in strong moral values for providing effective living and leadership is another aspect of training that we provide. Please go through the description of these programmes and if you have any further questions kindly contact us.

Education Today Society Tomorrow (ETST) 

Teachers are called ‘nation builders’. If that is true, what sort of nation/world have we built over the years? The most impressionable part of a person’s life is spent in school. This is the time one’s attitudes and values are shaped. That means, as teachers we have a great role in shaping a child’s personality.  As teachers, are we doing justice to our roles as ‘nation builders’ and ‘torch bearers of civilization’? This question is a major concern to educators. ETST workshops bring the spotlight to values education which will lead to the formation of an ethical society.
