HOPE Intiative gives online training
The year 2020 created havoc in the world. Everything went topsy turvy. We saw a different world …. a digital world. Every educational institute had shifted to an online learning platform. Each family member was hooked to either computer or smartphone. Teachers of the schools had to take their classes from home and the whole method of teaching shifted to online, Fear, uncertainty, tension gripped the mind of many people. How to deal with this unknown disease, how to wear a mask, and why, how to keep Covid 19 at bay were the only topics of discussion among people. Keeping all these things in mind we also started taking our sessions online.
Since March,2020 we conducted around 98 webinars apart from our regular online sessions. Mental Health & Anxiety was the most needed topic at that time. Our founder Director Dr. Gourdas Choudhuri and Ms Rashi Khanna (practicing clinical psychologist) had together conducted those sessions with the teachers, students, and other people from different walks of life. Apart from mental health, we had conducted webinars on Covid Awareness, Hepatitis, how to lead your lifestyle during Covid, and many more.
HOPE partners with ZS Associates
HOPE Initiative enters into a CSR project with ZS Associates, a US-based management consulting firm. Together we will be working on the much-needed health-based and infrastructural development of an underprivileged school- A-One Public School. This is a year-long project wherein the students, as well as their parents and teachers, will be given an opportunity on understanding how to take care of their physical and mental health apart from providing with basic amenities like clean drinking water, sanitation kits, dustbins, etc.

We celebrated Road safety week on 17th Jan’18 at Shiksha Mandir School. It was an interschool event and students from various other schoold also participated. The Chief guest for this event was Mr. Satender Singh Yadav, who has been in police force for over 40 years.
The event kickstarted with an interactive, interesting talk by Mr Yadav, enlightening the young ones about the importance of obeying the traffic rules and the do’s and dont’s of road safety. This was followed by a Nukkad Natak performed by Dharma group. This streetplay reiterated what Mr. Yadav conveyed in a fun, dramatic way.
The event ended with a quiz competition in the form of a game of chits. The event succeeded in sending across the message to the young minds on the importance of heeding the traffic rules.
