Ginny’s Planet aims to build a world where no one feels odd-one-out on the basis of differences. We nurture aware, empathic, and diversity respecting people and spaces through the following:
Empathy and diversity trainings for children: These trainings are offered to children aged 4 years and above. The trainings use a combination of stories, toys, games, reflections, and action. These sessions are conducted in a short workshop or over few days or weeks. Some of the workshops we offer:
- Practicing Empathy
- Being different is being OKAY: Acknowledging Diversity
- Understanding disability as diversity
- Inquiry & research as a way of life
- Make your own Ginny
- Make your own Ginny stories
‘Disability as diversity’ trainings for adults and organizations: Orientation sessions with employees of organizations promote an understanding of disability and basic do’s and don’ts of respecting disability as part of human diversity. These orientations are participatory. We engage participants actively through a combination of audio-visual content, discussions, as well as group activities.
Workshops for change-makers and development/social work professionals: We nurture a range of perspectives and skills through workshops and conversations on empathy, diversity, disability, use of dolls and doll-making as a catalyst for change, and so on. We also offer 30 minutes free online capsule workshops. These are conducted monthly.
