In July 2020, I, Madhuri Gour from JBCN International School in Borivali, commenced my journey as an IAYP Award Leader Coordinator. It brings me immense joy to reflect on my ongoing journey. As part of our school's vision to promote the holistic development of learners, The International Award for Young People has provided them with various opportunities to make a difference in the world.
I have witnessed significant changes in Award Participants as they progress through the Bronze and Silver levels. The Award Programme has enabled them to improve their physical fitness and discover their physical strength, as well as explore and develop their interests and skills, which are essential for personal and career growth.
Furthermore, the adventurous journey aspect of the programme has taught them valuable life skills and prepared them to handle unexpected challenges.
I must acknowledge the unwavering support of the IAYP team, particularly Mr. Bivujit Mukhoty and Ms. Kavita Patil, who patiently answered all the students' questions and contributed to their success.
I am grateful to my school's Director Principal, Mrs. Debika Chatterji and Deputy Principal, Mr. Soumyabrata Mukherjee, for placing their trust in me and allowing me to lead The Award Programme in our school.
