Mumbai Smiles’ Higher Education Project continues to strive towards empowering adolescent girls into becoming community change agents. From building life skills to nurturing self-reliant individuals, the project’s aim is to create a cadre of committed volunteers for community welfare.
An engaging and interactive session was organized with 16 beneficiaries on 10th October 2018, at Sangharsh Nagar in Chandiwali to highlight the importance of having goals in life. Through group building exercises and goal oriented games, the significance of setting targets for oneself was explained. The need to set SMART goals for personal growth and development was stressed upon. Personal experiences shared by the resource persons, provided guidance to the beneficiaries to articulate their own goals.
Helping girls realize their life aspirations is key to their self-development. Hence, beneficiaries were requested to take time and examine their goals and ambitions; where would they like to see themselves in the future. In a follow up session, participants will present their roadmaps to success.
