  • I am not here to help them alone. There are so many of them - their own peers, sisters & brothers, parents, the community and the social and physical environments who are full of resources and promises. All of them together have enormous potential. How do I orient myself to welcome all of them into our pedagogy, curriculum and learning ventures? How do I create a meaningful learning atmosphere for all of us?

  • Few of the steps in my life have given me this idea that schools can be platforms for community learning. Now we all in the community are joining hands as friendly partners to strive for a learning society. We are realizing our important roles day by day. To day we are constructing new aims for our learning venture. We are constructing a new society together and a better tomorrow on Earth.
