Program Method

A variety of learning pedagogies like Emotional Intelligence, Non-Violent Communication (NVC) form the basis of supporting children to increase self-awareness. By the end of the year children build trust in themselves, engage in dialogue with their peers, become aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and strengthen their emotional literacy. The work with this group also utilizes other mediums like movies, videos and stories to inspire children.

I have been in Meera centre since the last 5 years, and I can see many changes in myself. I have noticed my behavior has shifted, I am able to better understand my friends.
