Foresight Education Foundation conducts a series of Workshops throughout the year for children as we believe that a workshop is a great platform
for hands on learning through enjoyable activities. Not only it’s a great opportunity for learning more effectively from direct interaction but it also encourages participants to exchange experiences, ideas and practices making new friends in the process. A workshop is also a great tool for developing skills like effective communication, team work, presenting, creative thinking and problem solving and increased confidence to talk about ones own views.
