Workshop Reflections
ASHA Training Program for Vijaya Foundation, Mysore

[Vijaya Foundation, Mysore wished to adopt the ASHA Project in some of the schools in Mysore. As a result, a training session was organized on 14th July, in Bangalore for their Team. Feedback and a glimpse are as shown as below ]

"Our members and MD felt, that really you people are doing a great job. Learning a new language and implementing that in Government schools is not a small thing (referring to Kannada language that has been learnt by ASHA teachers who are basically Gujaratis and other non-Kannadigas). We are very much proud of your Social service and commitment. We are planning to implement the whole syllabus what you people have prepared. But we need your kind co-operation." - Renukaji, Vijaya Foundation.

ASHA Training Program for RAMBUS, Bangalore

[Last month, some software professionals from Rambus joined hands with ASHA to conduct health classes for school children. A preliminary training program was held for them, for some selected subjects of the whole course. It was an interesting program, since the training was conducted by simple housewives for a class of professional software engineers! A feedback - ]

“The session was very interesting and we got a very good understanding of what OASIS aims to achieve through its endeavors – a noble cause indeed. The 3 sessions were informative, to the point and we have a good idea of what to do and how, when we really go to the classrooms. It is not easy for the presenters to behave with us as if they are in the real classroom; however they did a great job and we were really able to understand how to put the method into practice. I believe that the methodology is practical and can be easily adopted by us when we go to the schools; the sheet provided along with the modules help keep things organized and can serve as a reminder on the flow of topic in the class. I can visualize myself going the class and taking modules as we were trained. The only thing that is stopping us is the language barrier." - Mr. Srinivaraman, Rambus
