EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING PROGRAM

Learn from the source and be self reliant at the age of 18

VISION OF ELP

It is a program where seekers are introduced to all survival aspects of life such as, ethical farming to keeping the food chain alive, identification of naturally grown vegies, traditional cooking, washing, self managing the day to day activities, working as a team to complement the efforts, basic knowledge of electrical & plumbing, masonry, carpentry, art and craft, food processing and also to enhance the knowledge of sustainable developments by preserving the ecosystem for future generations. It is an opportunity for them to inculcate human values and to self explore. It also provides an opportunity to understand stakeholder engagements in the agriculture and tourism sector through the empowerment of the farming community, alternate way of living, social entrepreneurship, rights and responsibilities and ways to eliminating all kinds of social discrimination that exists in society. Participation in our ELP Certification is expected to fortify one’s capacity for discernment, thereby supporting the realization of personal goals.

CURRICULUM

The ELP curriculum will present topics from the fields of architecture, agriculture, tourism, ecology, art, music and local cuisines. The collaborative presentation of the various topics is tasked to encourage the creativity of thought and awareness of socially identified needs. The cornerstone of our presentation style is experiential. Through such exposure, we hope to impart a pragmatic system of decision-making, with which participants may access the ‘why’ of their actions.

TGG Foundation understands a person who knows the “why” of their actions to be a congruent individual. Within society, congruent individuals are our leaders, role models & sages, but most importantly congruent persons are happy. Contended with their understanding of their personal relevance of being, in relation to the other, a congruent person is able to authentically dedicate themselves to any pursuit they identify as worthy. This is because such a mode of engagement has a substantially motivating and inspirational effect. We hope to create responsible citizens who lead the life of a realized being on this planet.
