We have been conducting this program for last 3 years in government high schools & colleges of East Godavari District, AP & Mahbubnagar District, TS. Until now, we have covered 80+ schools and colleges and reached out to 15,000 students.
After attending your session, I got a clear view of my life now. Many seminars were conducted in our college so far but this one was so different. Please let me volunteer in your activities from now on. N.Meghana, 3rd Yr BBM, Aditya Degree College for Women, Kakinada
Your session completely changed the attitude of a rebel student who has publicly apologized for his past misbehaviour. We have been trying to counsel him for last couple of years to bring this change. Thank you very much for making such a difference in our students’ way of thinking. – Sri Raju, Vice Principal, Pydah College of Engineering, Kakinada
We have realized what else we need to teach the children in the classroom along with the subjects like Math, English, and Science. Your session looked more apt to us (teachers) than to the children. Thank you for coming all the way from Kakinada and for changing the way we think about education. - Teaching Staff at ZP High School, Mudunuru, Vuyyuru Mandal, Krishna District
The school administration may not be willing to welcome these kinds of sessions even though it benefits the children a lot and we offer for free.
There were some protocol issues that we had to go through while getting access to the school. We had to satisfy the ego of district officials in this process.
Many schools do not have a good auditorium or big class room to make all the children sit at one place while conducting this session. We had to repeat the session at such places
Majority of the schools are not equipped with public audio system and hence we had to arrange our own set up
Though the teachers appreciate our effort in motivating the children, none of them comes forward to volunteer in our attempt. We even offer free training for them
