In a world that thrives on communication and building connections, we must be able to evaluate arguments, listen empathetically and articulate our views. Debating is the best way to learn to voice your opinions and resolve conflicts. Hence, we build these skills with the volunteers and the students together by learning a version of the British parliamentary debate. This programme will help students and volunteers engage more deeply with each other and take responsibility for their views. It will also teach them how to listen well which is a foundation stone for self-learning.
We work with students in class 7 and 8 as they are starting to form opinions about how the world is and how it works. At this stage we teach them to think well, question wisely, and most important, to listen carefully.
