‘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.

  • 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)
