Emotional Intelligence is a component that has been adversely ignored and not been incorporated in our current Indian education curriculum. Light Up is making an effort to prototype and develop Social- Emotional Learning workshops for children from low-income communities. Join our journey and help us bring this reform in the Indian education system.
Light Up – Social-Emotional Learning workshops began in Central Delhi in a small community called Sanjay Camp. Our regular visits made us aware of the dire need of an emotional quotient and the role it can play in revamping the Indian education system, for the betterment of underprivileged communities like our own, whose struggles make their day to day lives much more challenging.
Our classroom consists of students between the ages of 6-14, who are learning to express themselves confidently through our interactive mediums such as storytelling, theatre and other forms of creative expressive arts. The emotions expressed between these blue walls tie us together in our collective effort towards creating a cohesive society.
