We held Gender Awareness workshop at BSH Arya secondary school , Sohana, Mohali for their teaching and non teaching staff of 30 people. Though all the roads to sohana were blocked due to "Chakka Jam" call given by kisan andolan activists. Yet, our spirits were high and same was with the school management.We left our car on one side of the crossing and walked across the road for nearly 1 km. The school management was kind enough and they promptly sent a car to fetch us to school.
School principal mrs Sunita, welcomed us warmly. Mrs. Suman Sharma Principal of Star public School, Kajehri organised the workshop.
Prajakta Avadh, President of Samvedna and Ritu Pathak, executive member, generated gender awareness amongst the participants, through various activities. The participants, enthusiastically, participated in the activities and expressed their views as to social beliefs prevelant among society.
All in all, it was an insightful experience and Mrs. Sunita, the school Principal, expressed her willingness for future endeavours with Samvedna
