Mr. Kiran Gandhi and Mr. Arun Wakhlu, two HR professionals passionate about Leadership Development and Organizational Transformation, felt the dire need for a development programme for educators in HR practices rooted in the universal human principles of lofC. Their vision was to enhance collaboration within and across schools and increase the happiness quotient of all stakeholders in education.

Several educators responded to the challenge and joined this life-changing journey. After 28 years, the learnings from the ETST workshops have been crystallized into five essential components: Self-Awareness, Ethical Governance, Compassionate Leadership, and Respect for Diversity, and Empathetic Service to Society. These components provide a ready framework for schools to adopt the spirit and practice of the core principles of lofC.

Reinventing Schools, Rebuilding the World e Vision: Co-creating a just, peaceful, and sustainable world through meaningful education

Objectives of the Development Programme: This unique programme touches upon an educator's personal, professional, and societal roles. It inspires each one to become the best version of oneself.

All stakeholders in education - government officials, trustees, school leaders, teachers, parents, students

The programme has transformed the lives of individuals in various ways:

  • Relationships have improved in families and school teams.
  • Anger and jealousy have given way to love and selfless service.
  • Discipline and punctuality have improved at school.
  • Educators have found a new purpose beyond themselves to bring about far-reaching changes in their neighbourhoods and cities.

Rs 10,000/- + GST

All our facilitators comprise of HR professionals, teachers, school leaders, and management representatives, who have applied the principles of lofC in their lives and experienced its magic, thus becoming ‘jugnus’ who can light the way for others

About and who can attend 




The ‘India, I Care’ session at the ETST workshop impacted me greatly. Now I consciously work not only for the benefit of my own group of schools but for the country and world at large. Through our programme, ‘Tuesdays for Tomorrow’, we collaborate with schools across Pune in meaningful education. Students from our school have also set up a connection with their counterparts in Karachi and in the process discovered how much we have in common.

Even though I haven’t attended a residential ETST workshop, the weekly webinar has made a tremendous change in my life. It gave me a chance to listen to my inner voice. Initially, I didn't think this would make such a big change. It acts like an autocorrect for me. I feel very very pleasant. It gives clarity even in very small things.

I was unhappy over my broken relationships in the family and I always had a habit of overthinking and worrying about what others say. This inner voice has given me clarity that I was overthinking just because I wanted to control others’ thoughts. Now I believe that the only thing I can control is my efforts and my thoughts. I feel very light and peaceful.

I learned about conservation of resources from the lofC centre, Asia Plateau, and introduced solar-powered lighting in my school. At the ETST workshops, we meet educators from all over the country and pick up best practices from each other. I entered into a collaboration with The Orchid School, Pune, a private CBSE school, and we have had several student and teacher exchange programmes.

“With my first experience at the lofC centre Panchgani in an ETST workshop where the session used to begin at 6 am and end by 10 pm, after five days, I realised that a day can become so productive if early mornings are included. The impact of Quiet Time and listening to the inner voice was powerful. My 17 years as a principal in this school had made me a bit complacent about early mornings and I would take it easy as everything was running on autopilot. After my first experience at lofC, I made a drastic change to my routine and using the early morning times productively. In my first month back I completed all my parent meetings, almost 3000 parents, student meetings, and one on one meetings with parents of Std 10.”

I also introduced Quiet Time practice daily at a given time for 7 to 10 minutes for all present in the school and a_ sharing of the thoughts. This has now become a habit in my school. Teachers use this after completing a unit of teaching. Quiet Time is practised during our educational tours, field trips, and any other event very successfully.

This has given me such a sense of self-empowerment as I get first-hand information [not from my Vice Principals or supervisors], given me more control over affairs, and obviously received higher respect from others.

This has now become a part of my work habit. In my personal life too, it has helped me to be more disciplined. Listening to the inner voice has helped me to be calmer and peaceful, taking responsibility for my actions and a feeling of fulfilment. During the pandemic, I have started a ‘Chat with the Principal’ series, in which I have small groups of students who chat with me regarding inner voice listening practices, lessons from the Geeta series, and asking ourselves the purpose of life.

I cannot thank enough the person or the opportunity that brought me in touch with the ETST team that has had a life-altering experience for me.
