How many sessions will the children need to attend?

You can choose to join all relevant sessions by registering for all at early bird rates.


You can pay Rs. 5000 (early bird registration) to join any 15 sessions. We will take your preferences and block the spots in different sessions.


How many spots are there in each workshop?

The spots vary between 30 & 50 according to the preference of the expert conducting the session. The spots, will, of course, fill up fast! Hence, we recommend that you block your spots now.


How big is the workshop venue? Can children with disabilities attend?


The workshops are taking place in a well-lit, clean hall of Theatre Kunzum, M Block Market, GK2, New Delhi. This venue can easily accommodate 100 people. We are keeping the number much lower per workshop so that children have enough space to move around and work.

We welcome all children to join, including children with disabilities.

There is a lift/elevator to reach Theatre Kunzum once you enter the building. However, we apologize for the fact that there are 2-4 steps at the entry which are a barrier for a wheelchair user. The toilet attached to Theatre Kunzum is also not accessible for wheelchair users.

We hope these barriers will be overcome when we do this event again.

Empathy and diversity workshops & courses for children and grownups

These trainings are offered by Ginny’s Planet to children aged 4 years and above. We use a combination of stories, toys, games, reflections, and action.  Some of the workshops we offer:

  1. Practicing Empathy
  2. Being different is OKAY: Acknowledging Diversity
  3. Understanding disability as diversity
  4. Inquiry & research as a way of life
  5. Make your own Ginny
  6. 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.

Know your Facilitator: Dr. Shweta Verma

Courses are run in 3-6 sessions. The dates & timings (Mon-Saturday) are decided with mutual discussion. Successful completion of each course involves assignments during the course and Learning Review at the end of the Course.

Why should you orient children through these workshops?

  • You want to prepare future citizens who are kind, caring, and respectful for diversity. Their future decisions will be influenced by how they view their world and their role in it.
  • You want children to combat stereotypes, bias, and discrimination from an early age!
  • To nurture an environment of respect for differences.
  • To nurture the spirit of exploration and inquiry to find answers (instead of believing in opinions)
