Sudeshna Sinha, Founder and Coordinator, gives an insight into the workings of Shikshamitra.
Shikshamitra is a process of learning to live better; it is a space where one learns to keep well and helps others keep well too. Shikshamitra has an address, but it goes beyond this -- permeating into the lives of many, influencing one's choices in life and ways of life. To be associated with Shikshamitra is to assume the responsibility of trying to live better. It is a continuous attempt to search for activities, that inspire life and build trust, or, it is an attempt to keep away from anything to the contrary. Shikshamitra is a means towards becoming aware of how much one can be and knowing exactly what one's limitations are.
We are looking at the development of Shikshamitra, its very nature, prompts us to dream of an open learning, interactive space for many.
