Awareness, wellbeing, animal responsibility and education for school children in urban cities
AWARE INDIA is an educational initiative developed by RESQ that is built on children’s affinity for animals. The curriculum focuses on deepening their understanding of human-animal coexistence and enables them to grow up to be empowered, empathetic and aware citizens of the future. The curriculum also sets into motion the fundamentals needed to help transform the classroom and school climate, enhance teacher-student interactions, and motivates children to positively engage with the community. The inclusion of real-life scenarios and animal-related activities which promote reflection and compassion, captivates students, educators, and parents. Every module of the AWARE INDIA curriculum reinforces the focal areas of our program. Children learn about animals and their immediate environment while also acquiring skills that support their ability to cope with stress, attain self-confidence and empathy, and learn to collaborate and make informed decisions. Each module includes an educational/ developmental objective with hands-on activities and games reinforcing the learnings of the module. The AWARE INDIA Curriculum is implemented in schools, afterschool programs and other community-based groups serving children and youth. It is developed for Grades 1 to 12 with continuity through all grade levels. The curriculum is based on 6 core modules to be conducted during the academic year. The AWARE INDIA program has been developed by RESQ Charitable Trust and jointly funded by Capricon Realty, Thackersey Group, Mumbai, and TATA group of companies in Pune.
