Our Programs have empowered thousands of children across India

School Program

We aim to evolve and include emotional intelligence in daily classroom and school activities through Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) Programmes.

Youth Program - Project Phoenix

The project caters to the children from lower-income spaces, child care homes, and sex-work communities. We aim to provide enhanced sustainable livelihood opportunities through the inclusion of SEL.

SEL-ART Kit

We have identified that children divide their time between school and home. Thus, we launched our SEL and Art intervention in an urban slum.
