Hi Jenny,

Its a lovely initiate, really well thought through. I would like to know what is the content that is accessible to these girls for learning. Are you following any particular syllabus or curriculum. Have you tied up any school or university for their curriculum. What are the skills and capabilties that you are looking into developing.

Hi Sarah Nethan,

Thank you so much for going through the post and sharing your views on it. Ideally I would like to change the education system completely and make it more practical and hands-on and shift the focus from only academics to development of these capabilities amongst children; look at holistic development of children. But since that is not possible immediately, the book is suggestion for a possible first step. It could be in introduced as a subject or a class, where the children are involved in integrating all their learning from different subjects and actively participate in various activities. Theses activities cannot be solved by rote learning, it involves planning, critical thinking and decision making. Hence preparing the child to face the unpredictable future.
