“Looking back to where I was at the beginning of this trip and to where I am now at the end, it’s amazing how far I have come, and how much I have learnt.” – Josh Baxter, Intern from the UK
LightLives provides a unique learning and development opportunity. It takes learning and development out of the boring confines of conference rooms or classrooms into the real-life immersive experience that working in a low-income school provides.
LightLives gives the children in these schools with disadvantaged background, an opportunity to interact and learn from people of different ethnicity and culture. Teachers at these schools also benefit from the experiences that the international Facilitators bring. On the other side, it lights up the lives of incoming Facilitators as well by providing them with an opportunity to make a social impact.
TalentEase provides students from overseas universities and schools, the chance to experience India, contribute through meaningful projects in schools that need help and at the same time discover themselves.
Have your employees embark on the ‘next-gen’ learning experience by teaching at schools in India. TalentEase works with host schools that will welcome your employees for stints varying from 2 weeks to 6 months or beyond.
These programs are arranged in association with our partner The Diversity and Innovation Company in London. The company was founded by David Evans, a former Partner-Managing Director with Accenture UK, who is passionate about creating a diverse and innovation-rich experience for employees and young people.
