Infotaining Inclusion Tools

Trinayani has been bearing the torch of awareness-building on diversity, inclusion and accessibility by conducting customised, ever-transforming awareness sessions & workshops for different stakeholders, along with promoting awareness through creative means in the form of literature, games, puppet show, music and awareness films. We believe that inclusion can only happen when the ‘I’ perspective transitions to the ‘We” perspective. A positive, open and universal outlook is the key to inclusion. Through our various projects and initiatives, we build on these stepping stones to create a path that can be tread upon by ALL. 

 

We urge you to read and connect with us if any of the below strategies, appeals to you, and can be used by you to further the cause of disability awareness. Some of our tools on Inclusion are: 

1. Games

2. Puppet Show

3. Story Books

Snakes and Ladders Floor Game

While growing up, all of us have had the chance to roll the dice and avoid the gigantic snakes to victory in the snakes and ladders games. Imagine if you could do the same but, in the process, you are revisiting your attitude and perceptions towards people with disabilities around you?  Trinayani, supported by Samam Vidya, is happy to present the interactive version of the classic game of Snakes and Ladders in order to inculcate the value of understanding and respecting the various ways people differ. This fun-filled kinesthetic group activity requires participants to be the pawns in this room-sized game, which is played with an oversized die.

 

Our version features situations written on the board involving values and behaviours, resulting in forwarding or backward motions, and leading to discussions along the way. The idea is to reinforce that, accommodating our fellow citizens and making considerate choices can result in going up the ladder.

 

We have this S & L game in Hindi, English and Bengali.  We also have 2 different versions, one for the academic community and one for the corporate sector.

 

You can order this game which will be shipped by Trinayani within 3 weeks from the date or order.

Product Specification:

· 10 ft by 10 ft flex sheet

· Super-sized stuffed die

· Instruction card

· Discussion card

Puppet Shows

 

“The Learning Factory”

Keeping up with the vision and mission of Trinayani, the inclusion of persons with disabilities is given crucial attention when it comes to learning and teaching. When we talk about diversity in a country like India, we already happen to have many such platforms in terms of ethnicity, culture, etc. So keeping the diverse culture of education in mind as well, how each child has different types of skills and potential, we curated a puppet show to help trigger the same. Our musical puppet show ‘The Learning Factory’ is based on the popular fable ‘The Animal School’ by George Reavis. It puts a strong front about the fact that not everyone has the same amount or kind of ability. Some people can be different from others and that, in any way does not imply that they cannot be acknowledged.

 

We include live musical narration and synchronised puppetry which makes the show fresh every time. Through this method, not only do we rekindle the imagination of the younger generation, but also continue the legacy of our age-old techniques, protecting them from extinction.

Story Books

 

Nancy’s Move to Delhi

We are all different, some of us are taller, some shorter, some have long hair, some walk and talk differently than we do. Wouldn’t it be great to find out more about the many different kinds of people who live on this earth with us? Our story Nancy’s move to Delhi is now available for all of you to read from the comfort of your homes at Story Weaver.

 


Awareness Booklets

Since our chief motive remains awareness, we use several mediums to spread our message.

 

We regularly publish Disability Awareness booklets which are basically simple pictorial information booklets to:

  • Create awareness, communicate APPROPRIATE INFORMATION on disability issues
  • Remove misinformation and provide appropriate visibility of persons with disabilities.
  • Alter reader’s perspective on the problems and issues faced by persons with disability,
  • Portray messages which convey the fact that Diversity is Good, Diversity is needed and Diversity adds Value to our lives.

Worksheets on Student Sensitization

We at Trinayani have been working in designing literature to introduce our young children to and learn about diversity. The Pdfs below can be used as a teaching tool for the students. These were created to be used as a starting point in developing lessons. 

 

The object of this initiative is to take away the fear and avoidance that comes from facing the unknown and replace it with a comfortable attitude leading to active and compassionate engagement with people different from ourselves.
