Bharat Soka Gakkai, under its ‘BSG for SDG’ initiative, organized an outreach programme with Gyandeep Growth Foundation gyandeepgrowth – a not-for-profit organisation that strives to inculcate an importance of education in the minds of economically weaker sections of society.

On 6th April 2023, BSG conducted the first PDP (Personality Development Programme) session titled “HERO IN ME” with a group of 50 students from the Foundation. The session focused on self-awareness and helped the students identify their strengths and using them in progressive ways. It also helped students understand ways to overcome their weaknesses and brought out the conviction that there is a hero in everyone, and with consistent efforts, we can bring out these heroic qualities from within our life.

Not only did the session help contribute to SDG 4: Quality Education and SDG 1: No Poverty, but it also helped contribute to SDG 5: Gender Equality. Initially, the girl students felt that HERO was a term only associated with boys. However, after the session, they understood how everyone has heroic qualities regardless of gender.
