For a second year consecutive The Samena Foundation invited us to collaborate with them in the Leadership Development Program which was organised in conjunction with Lila´s Poonawalla Foundation and the Asha Centre.
24 girls with great potential who were about to finalise their studies in India, where sponsored to participate in a three week program in London that would help them develop into awesome leaders. They were taught leadership skills, empathy, communication and personal well-being techniques among many other things.
What makes this initiative so unique and special is that this program was never intended as a course with a full academic education program but more like a wholesome leadership experience designed to teach these incredible ladies how to be great leaders buy using not only their brains but also their hearts.
We too wanted to make our contribution towards helping these fantastic girl became great leaders and so we spend two full days coaching them on how to feel good about themselves. We covered topics like nutrition, exercise, beauty tips, natural cosmetics and massage and relaxation techniques. All these techniques will enable them to be more proactive, have less stress and achieve a healthier balance in life.
Our great friend Adela Marcos, a wonderful specialist in therapeutic pedagogy, flew all the way from Spain to run an exciting activity based on none verbal communication. The aim of the exercise was to help them recognise their emotions when approaching different people. What a great learning experience this was!
We had such a fulfilling and amazing time meeting these girls that we would like to encourage you all to collaborate with these incredible foundations that are trying really hard to make a positive contribution to our world:
