EDUCATE

Youth and Students, from ages 7 and above

Happy children learn best!

We know learning never ends but major mindsets are formed at a young age. What can children learn from this community that will add to their development? How can we create an inclusive, non-judgmental and empathetic society for our children to grow up in? 

 

Our hope is always in the next generation of leaders. As college or university students venturing into the working world, can this experience teach and instill resilience, authenticity and empathy? Will they graduate and be change makers to influence their circumstances, contribute to society and transform our nation? 

 

Do you lead a group of youth or students and looking to teach them values that they can carry with them for a lifetime?

 

Come and explore a world that is unknown to many.

Take an impactful journey that will last you a lifetime, open your eyes beyond what you know now and perhaps you can start a dialogue that includes all.

Education Workshop

[customisable for any student age group]

Our education workshops are designed with the objective to take students on an adventure beyond their regular routine and awaken their non-visual senses. We create a space to enhance and train communication skills and learning assured dependency on others in a new environment. 

 

Participants begin to discover their own hidden potential and strength. They learn to trust others developing good leadership and the need to put their differences aside and work together as a team. 

 

Our trainers, themselves blind or visually impaired are experts in non-visual perception, create a learning atmosphere of authenticity, empathy and openness.
