Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
A number of years ago, I attended a session by an American teacher who was shocked to know that she had to teach in a remote village in a poor third world country with no mobiles, no internet connections and no electricity after 5 pm.!!
This session made me realize how much are we obliged to develop our society and spread globally. It's a responsibility that no one can refute especially if you have the ability to participate in!!
I came up with an initiative that I started applying in a school in a poor district of our capital. To my surprise, the idea was almost rejected?! Yet I came to ask myself:
1. How can I manoeuvre to find a way out?!
2. Who can I start with?!
3. Where shall I start?!
4. What tools do I have in hand?!
5. What about the students?!
I started.........It worked! .......... I am still working on it !........... Would you like to know what happened?! ............. Come and join me on this session !!!
