Module 4, Post 1 – Centre for inter generational learning

Yakshi is an organisation which, in their own words “supports adivasi visions of buen vivir ( manchi jeevitam- a good life)  based on holistic co-existence and recovery of lost harmony between humans and mother nature.”

Yakshi mainly engages with the adivasi peoples over issues of – Law and Governance, Women empowerment, Youth Leadership and cultural action which includes theatre and folk art.

One interesting endeavour has been the setting up of Gotti – A creative space for young people to connect to social movements through critical dialogue and inter-generational learning. It also provides a space for nurturing life skills like organic food farming, sustaining local performing arts,  reviving local crafts, exploring  music, culture, arts, theatre and ideas and providing a creative learning space for children.
