Vidya...Aussie educators to train teachers in India.

Vidya…Aussie educators to train teachers in India.

The acclaimed Bollywood actress Vidya Balan has been quite vocal about her support to make women oriented films. She has been inspiring the women of our country with her women oriented films and has been amazing at it.

She has been the Festival ambassador for the Indian Film Festival which was held in Melbourne since the past 5 years. Vidya launched a new charity initiative in Melbourne known as the ` Train the Trainers` in partnership with the Latrobe University and is also supported by the Victorian Government.

When Vidya was asked about her  views on this subject she said “I am proud of our film festival that is now establishing its charity initiative with our train the trainers initiative to bring specialists and teachers from Australia to work with teachers in India and help support our teachers in making education more inclusive”.

The idea of this initiative runs parallel with the introduction of a new law by the Indian Government which has taken care of the people and children with special needs and reserved a certain number of seats for them in all the educational institutes.

Professionals skilled with dealing with such kids will fly down to India in November to train the educators to make them skilled enough to deal with these kids. – CINEWS
