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:
- Practicing Empathy
- Being different is 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.
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)
