Polaris employees get into the role of active trainers and mentor these students. By rendering these sessions, besides sheer joy and satisfaction, they get a unique opportunity to shape the thinking of thousands of young students, the future of our country.
‘TOUCH THE SOIL’ Program
The ‘Touch the Soil’ program reaches young minds in the districts through its ‘Diary of Dreams’ and ‘Planning’ workshop for Class IX and X students. The program spreads the power of believing in dreams to high school students across the rural areas of the country. The Diary of Dreams workshop encourages children to share their aspirations and put down their dreams on paper, helping commit the dream to their subconscious. The objective is to inspire students to dream big and with conviction and start translating these dreams into action.
