The Ekam Project is a free self-sustaining career program for schools and made with a vision to create environment of Oneness among School, Parents and Students.
Ekam session is the time when the school and the parents meet and work for one motive: To enlighten the future of children. It is when each one of them takes step beyond their priorities and work together for their children.
What is Ekam Session?
Ekam session is an interview of the parent with the children from senior classes as audience. The session is recommended to be at least for 1 hour per week. In the session, the parents will share their life journey till the age. More details will be in the concerned section. Within the session, the students can ask their questions from the parents to get more enlightenment.
Why Ekam Session?
There are multi-fold benefits of Ekam. It covers a lot issues and also gives many opportunities for the student to nurture and create their future with more clarity and a reliable support.
Ekam sessions are led by parents of the student studying in the same school itself. So, it leaves a sense of connectivity with the students and the other parents. The students can trust the speaker he/she being the parent of their own friend. Moreover, if they are aspiring the same career as of the speaker, they get connected to a reliable source of contact that can help them to achieve their dreams. This relationship will not just enlighten the pathway to future, but also will create a source of face-to-face conversation and being social in this rapidly contracting era of digital world where people are becoming anti-social.
For the student whose parent will be leading the session, will be the most exciting day of his/her life. For every kid, his/her parents are Super Heroes. While looking their parent leading the session and contributing in their friends’ life, it will create a morale boost in the child. This will also result in better relationships with the parents (Which is again a rapidly rising issue among teenagers in India)
Parents are often nervous about the future of their children. They sometimes are not able to guide the student for their aspiring career. With Ekam, they can rely on the person guiding them because the person is from a known source and of course with the motive of contribution. This again creates an opportunity of the community of parents coming together for the growth of each other’s children. Moreover, while contributing to Ekam sessions, they are ultimately creating the better future for their children. The clearer the path, the more successful the friends of their child, the better environment for him/her. The Ekam sessions, of course, is a motivational part for parents too. Acknowledging the achievements and making themselves available for the betterment of students takes courage and a worth-applause work.
Again, repeating lines for the parent too. For every kid, his/her parents are Super Heroes. While looking their parent leading the session and contributing in their friends’ life, it will create a morale boost in the child. This will also result in better relationships with the parents (Which is again a rapidly rising issue among teenagers in India)
Ekam will provide oneness between teachers and students about their future. The teachers can guide the students better as they interact and talk about the future. As the competition in the world is increasing, so is the pressure on teachers too. With this project, the teachers’ work may increase a little bit. But will give focus to their works.
For teachers, working in Ekam Sessions with parents will also provide an opportunity for a good connection with the students and parents, parents being sharing their lives and their most important events with them.
For School Management:
Sharing the concern for the future of the student to the parents and inviting parents for contribution will create a good bonding between two main stakeholders of student’s education. Ekam sessions will provide a space among management and parents where they can get connected to each other, know better and can discuss how their achievements can help the
future generations as a stepping stone. It is again a movement that conveys the message in the community that the school actually cares for the future of the children.
Parents being visiting the school premises and contributing in Ekam sessions will also build a trust level among the school which is somewhere getting depleted due to some accidents.
