Our school education system, especially the schools for the underprivileged, mostly ignores the emotional component in teaching. Although while all schools claims to be inclusive, most of the students are left out of emotional care a school is objected to provide. This makes most of the students feel their presence just do not matter and gradually, they become invisible, leaving a scar in their lives which makes them indifferent and withdrawn by the time they reach adulthood.
WE BELIEVE emotional support is extremely needed for nurturance of children so that they grow up in emotionally safe space knowing there are people on whom they can fall for emotional solace and there are people who cares for them.
SWF conducts workshops in association with Children First for Teachers, Children and Parents to address the issue of Proactive Emotional Health of children in a holistic manner.
These workshops train the Teacher to identify and resolve emotional issues of children through ‘Connect, Coach, Care , Community and Commit', involving parents, the school and other stake-holders. The workshop also teaches the toddlers and young children what is safe and unsafe when touching or being touched by others which includes touch from friends, family and strangers.
