Apni Shala focuses on building social and emotional resilience in students and systems around them by developing the following five competencies:

  • Self-Awareness
  • Self-Management
  • Responsible Decision Making
  • Social Awareness
  • Relationship Skills


In its current model, Apni Shala facilitatess SEL workshops once a week during school hours with students from 4th to 9th grade. Through the year, students receive 25 hours of SEL development. Powerful methods like drama, theatre, games, art and community projects are the primary mediums through which students are immersed in learning, through our programmes. To ensure an all-round approach to Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) education, Apni Shala also engages with teachers with the aim of inspiring and coaching them to become frontrunners of SEL development.Apni Shala facilitators work with caregivers/parents of the beneficiaries at least three times a year to promote a supportive environment for SEL. Apni Shala runs a year-long fellowship programme to develop SEL facilitators. Through a rigorous recruitment process, a group of fellows are selected and trained to facilitate SEL. This is aimed at addressing the lack of mental health workers/facilitators in India.
