Activity Overview

Introduction to Seeds of Awareness Program:

The Seeds of Awareness program, a collaboration between the Active Nonviolence Education Center and Manjushri Educational Services, is dedicated to spreading awareness on active nonviolence and gender sensitization among Tibetan children. Our goal is to make the activities memorable and enjoyable while focusing on gender mainstreaming and conflict resolution through peaceful dialogue.


The program employs an interactive learning approach, encouraging students to take an active role in their learning process, develop responsibility, and stimulate analytical thinking. The session began with self-introductions to create a welcoming atmosphere.

The storytelling session featured “Treasures from Tibet,” a story about Pema and her Momo-ley, who explore and cherish their secret treasures that hold historical memories. The narrative emphasizes themes of home, empathy, love, and belonging.

Following the storytelling, participants shared their thoughts and personal connections to the story. They expressed a strong desire to return to their homeland, Tibet, and emphasized their dedication to studying hard for this goal.

Interactive Activities:

  1. Writingabout their most cherished childhood memories.
  2. Discussing their most treasured possessions.
  3. Reflecting on the meaning of home.
  4. Creating a Family Tree.

Key Result Area/Strategic Objective: Exploring the question, “What does it mean to belong?”
