Maslows Pyramid of Human Needs enlists the natural human needs for an Overall Wellness, when these basic needs are unmet or disturbed humans develop false needs for Addiction and Intoxication. Dissatisfaction of these needs also disturb the Emotional personality of a individual thus leading to unhealthy interpersonal relationships and dealings.
We provide a Overall Wellness Program to the Youths. When their basic needs are satisfied, they naturally overcome the false need of Addiction and grow as an Overall Personality.
The methodology we follow is coherent with the Maslow’s Pyramid of Human needs.
Our standard process involves taking the students across the following in the chronological order as mentioned:
Spreading awareness of the need.
Holding one-time programs, presentations, and monthly meetings.
For the needy and the interested students, conduct well-designed and approved certificate-courses for de-addiction, skill development and handling academic pressures, through motivational programs, training modules, meditation techniques and yoga retreats.
Helping students to build peer friendship to overcome peer pressures, through communal gatherings and social service activities like cleaning, plantations etc.
Helping individual students with counselling and scholarships to bright students.
