MAHIMA FOUNDED DREAMING CHILD IN 2010
Steve Jobs said
“HAVE THE COURAGE TO FOLLOW YOUR HEART AND INTUITION. THEY SOMEHOW ALREADY KNOW WHAT YOU TRULY WANT TO BECOME.”
And that’s what Mahima knows – that she is meant to be the champion of children.
The number of children and parents who stand witness to and have benefited from her vision of what matters in the education of the young is growing.
She is Multi Dimensional : Singing, Dancing, Acting, Teaching and Learning – and all define who she is now.
Ken Robinson said ‘Education and training are the keys to the future. A key can be turned in two directions. Turn it one way and you lock resources away; turn it other way and you realize resources and give people back to themselves’.
Her passion for empowering children through the unique models created in Dreaming Child speaks volumes of her ‘entrepreneurial and creative skills’ in ways never seen before. It is not experimental, it is not a flash in the pan – it is built on much research on the what, why, how, when and where of ‘learning’ experiences.
Her moral and ethical compass will not let her do less by children and it is these values which have become the back bone of the company and draws facilitators and parents to it.
