NEW DELHI: Against the backdrop of the recent gang rape incident in New Delhi, the Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) takes a step to reach out to the 10.5 lakh students across 1,090 schools in the country. The step is aimed to sensitise, inform and prepare these young minds with the right kind of studies and modules and prepare them better to confront real time situations.
Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS) is known for running several awareness and sensitisation programmes in the past. But, this time, it has decided to take a unique approach with the model of three-tier educational intervention that involves gender sensitivity, propagation of moral education and capacity building.
The organization has already looped in renowned educationists and psychologists to help them with the mission.
KVS has already announced a workshop of 52 principals and 10 master trainers at Kendriya Vidyalaya, JNU Campus (New Delhi), on January 11. Following that, KVS has scheduled a two-day Teachers’ Workshop from January 18 to “foster and carry forward the message, spirit and skills of self-defence and self-management through a plethora of activities”.
It would finally “sensitise” students on the issue and thereby enable them to develop suitable capabilities, “in order to stand up against odds or similar such situations in future”.
As part of its adolescent education programme, KVS organizes several activities like role play, value clarification, counselling sessions, gender sensitisation programmes with assistance from expert panel of psychologists and doctors.
