CCD Sevayur Madurai teacher's workshop

August 1 and 2, 2009
V.R.Devika gave a two day workshop on Gandhi and education for rural school teachers at Sevayur an and half away from the city of Madurai. It was organised at the CCD sadhana centre. Organised by Priya Nagesh of Samanvaya knowledge trust, apart from Devika, Meenakshi of Puvidham a great earth lover who runs a school which teachers children of farmers to not just learn the letters but also love nature and learn to farm with Madhavraj a committed teacher in her school gave teachers glimpses into child friendly learning methods. There was also spinning on the Charka. An amazing experiment that is happening there with farming, education and self sustenance through the efforts of Mr.Muthu who is spearheading CCD and its community projects is simply amazing. CCD has been facilitating a process of developing the local resource base, building on the traditional knowledge and skills, and improving the community access to mainstream resources. The scale is awesome and the feeling of participation and warmth is very palpable. To know more, go to http://www.ccd.org.in/
