  5. Residential Workshops
  6. Scholarships: TMNP Gifted children come from the rural and underprivileged sections of the society. In many cases, the children want to pursue their formal education but are unable to do so due to lack of funds. TMNP Scholarship programs are available for such students. Their education fees and cost of books are partly or fully paid through this program. The students are in constant touch with our mentors to help them complete their education with best possible results. Sometimes we are not able to realize what we are able to give is so little, but which can make a huge difference in someone’s life. Scholarships are the best example of this.
  7. Tribal Teacher Training Program: Understanding and handling of gifted children’s needs is an ongoing task and for a better result, we need support from the school staff. To tackle this issue, we have developed the Tribal Teacher Training Module with the help of Manas Tatva. The training has in all 12 contact hours in three months. It is divided in Orientation, Training & Follow up. Along with this training each teacher gets individual counseling session, if required.
