‘It has indeed made our children understand the literal meaning of the sentence “judicious usage of resources” and indiscriminate plundering of natural wealth leads to exhaustion which mere class room teaching cannot offer. These things can be inculcated only through practical exposure………………………….’

Ms. Archana Neginhal, Principal Blue Mountain School, Ooty“The Karavan Team had created a program that challenged young minds. The modules and activities were based on thinking skills and expected learning outcomes were:
-ability to respond
-work as a team and present observations
-making connections and internalizing concepts.
Fortunately, I must say, they were not ability to reproduce facts and figures or textual matter.
Well organized, well planned, yet open ended in terms of structure! I feel it was a great success.”
