Humane Education Training

Humane Education Training

Teachers can not only impart knowledge of different subjects, often they are role models who inspire their students to perform and achieve. Children also tend to spend a large part of their waking hours with them, which makes teachers a big influence in their lives.

Karuna International sponsors Humane Education Training Programmes’ for Teachers and Students on behalf of the Animal Welfare Board of India to spread the message of compassion in action towards all living beings. It is a one-day programme with 40 to 50 teachers drawn from primary, secondary and higher secondary levels from different Karuna Club schools located near the organising school based on the themes of:

  • Value education
  • Compassion and kindness to animals
  • Prevention of cruelty to animals
  • Living in harmony with nature
  • Maintaining ecological balance
  • Vegetarianism

PowerPoint presentations, charts, exhibits, and films are used to make the training programme more interesting, fruitful and effective. Each programme contains 6 modules of 45 minutes duration each and includes lectures, demonstrations, group discussions, quiz, question and answer sessions, brain-storming sessions, field trips, project/assignments, exhibitions and video shows etc., 

Karuna International helps the training programme by identifying resource persons, providing instructional materials such as CDs and books, planning and executing the whole programme and also sponsoring all expenses up to ₹.5,000/- per programme. 

At the end of the programme, the trainee teachers are given a certificate.
