1Creating awareness of world complexities via talks on the Holocaust, the Rwanda Conflict, Human Rights and the Global Economic system as it exists. All of this to help students recognize and avoid every form of aggression, violence and hate, right from grassroots!
2Teaching Social Inclusion by practice. IWS has taken up the Deaf Community as a case study. We are building a bridge of respect and inclusion by assigning time each week for an accomplished and energized young Deaf instructor to teach Sign Language to our students. Beginning with the basics of ASL and moving on to Nepali Sign Language. It’s a lifetime experience for our students as they learn to be taught by a Deaf teacher, in silence. All about cultivating love and respect for diversity! But there’s more. Sign Language enhances cognitive skills and spatial sense as recognized the world over.
3Enhancing globally acceptable social skills conducive to successful networking and relationships, no matter where one is on the globe. We teach the importance and art of verbal communication. We discuss with our students the need to develop spiritual health, the fourth dimension of wellness, as once recommended by a WHO Executive Board.
