AMBASSADORS OF CHANGE (AOC)
AOC, a flagship programme since 2000, provides life skill education for in and out of school adolescents. It helps the young appreciate the changes in self and relationships; break myths and take informed decisions. It also helps them recognize their potential as individuals, leaders and change agents.
The programme is supported by a well designed training module and highly skilled trainers to help teachers, care givers & NGO staff to integrate life skills technique in their day to day activities with children and adolescents.
