“Our Responsibility to Children" (ORC) is a positive mental health programme being implemented by Svarnim Puducherry in 25 government schools of Puducherry covering almost 12,000 children. Transformative changes are being brought in by the Smart40 training workshops being conducted by the SP-ORC team comprising of trained clinical psychologists through elaborate, scientifically designed life-skill education programme. Currently the Smart40 workshops are being organized and going on in several schools.
Yesterday, the Smart40 workshop was conducted in the PS Palayam Government High School and as usual the response from the staff and children were overwhelming.
With the support of the government and other teachers, we hope Smart40 will slowly and steadily bring in the desired change in the lives of these students.
