Dronacharya and Eklavya (DnE) – Darkness to Enlightenment

Dronacharya and Eklavya (DnE) – Darkness to Enlightenment

Fine Sunday morning (Oops, early morning for a lazy goose like me!). Bhumians gathered at a primary school in Mylapore for the DnE Induction. The only question in everyone’s mind was how different is this induction going to be from the orientation the week before.

WIIFM – What’s In It For Me?

Bhumi’s programmes are beneficial not only to the children but also to the volunteers. And DnE is no exception.

Gyan, Presentation and lectures? – A big NO!!

It was interesting and worth losing our morning sleeps. Bhumi’s approach to induct its newbies was fantastic. To narrate a little more…

The volunteers were divided into groups and assigned three activities.

  • Warming-up and breaking the ice amidst us.
  • Writing down what the volunteers want to do through this program in the most creative way and presenting it to the other groups.
  • Getting a little professional, presenting to others a role play depicting the scope of the programme, the learning cycles and the obstacles we could face in this budding stag

The induction program was a fun learning experience. Getting the participants to interact, answer and induct themselves into DnE was so much better than making a presentation and bidding adieu. The benefits of this approach are:

  • Kindling the thoughts and creativity of the participants.
  • Making them feel an important part of the programme.
  • Keeping the programme open for ideas and suggestions, making it better in the long run.

Long way to go DnE! Cheers to the Volunteers! Good luck to All!
