Over the years, Project KHEL has made a name for itself in the field of training of trainers of other organizations. With rich experience and expertise in facilitation skills and ‘game-ifying’ of important messages through play-based and activity-based curricula, we are often approached by other much larger organizations to partner with them. The topics we have covered in these partnerships include gender gap, sexual harassment, menstruation, consent, puberty, gender sensitization and child sexual abuse. So far, we have conducted trainings and designed curricula for organisations like the UNICEF, ECO-FEMME, Organic India Foundation, University of Chicago, IPE Global and YP Foundation, Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Youth Development, etc.
Training of trainers
Any educator or trainer goes through intense journeys before being comfortable with their roles and being effective at their skills. Apart from having thematic knowledge of their subject, a trainer needs to acquire the right mindset and approach to be effective in their work. With ‘facilitation/training’ still being an abstract subject, trainers and educators are often lost as to what actionable steps they can take to connect better with the people they work with and maximize learning in a certain space.
Recognising this struggle, we have conducted workshops with trainers from several organisations working on different thematic areas. We introduce trainers in the development sector in using the art of play-based facilitation for various issues, ranging from women empowerment, child development to starting conversations on topics like child sexual abuse and menstrual hygiene. We introduce trainers to a process we call ‘gamification’, where we switch from traditional forms of classroom learning to a form of learning that is experiential in nature.
