Training as a social entrepreneur
This project empowers people to take up nature connection as a career option. To do this we will be running a free training program for a select few. We are looking for young adults (roughly between the ages of 18 and 21) who have passed out of govt schools or are from an underprivileged background or low-wealth community, who could be interested in working with children in Nature. We will be interviewing, and mentoring them in this and they will be able to earn themselves a stipend while training and then set up a career in this field, doing very impactful work for society. Not to mention the incredible amount of learning and skills picked up on this journey. If you think you do know someone who would fit this bill, Read more here.
Over the course of this academic year (beginning July 2018), we will be working with between 600 and 700 high children from governement schools as well as orphanages in Bangalore, India. We will be working with these students on recognizing interconnection between human beings and nature as well as looking at leadership in these spaces.
We are looking at the moment for volunteers. Every more minute of one-to-one time that we can give the children, will be of tremendous help.
Our project will be based on play, and not information. So no expertise needed. Simply a love for nature and willingness to listen and come to the level of the child. We will be working with children who might have some trauma in their histories. This format of openness isn’t something that they are used to and we will all take time to find ways to behave with each other.
- Sessions will take place in various parts of Bangalore and we will have both weekdays and weekend versions. You will be free to choose which to volunteer for.
- You will need to communicate in Kannada primarily, though it is perfectly alright not to have fluency.
If there is one thing I hear over and over from people who work with us in such sessions, it is that they cannot leave it unchanged. This will take you on a journey to connection, it will bring you up close and personal with life it its raw beauty.
If this is something that calls to you, please fill out this form, we will get back to you in a few days time:
Please also spread the news to anyone you think would be interested.
Gratitude from the bottom of our hearts.
