Srinagar: NalandaWay Foundation, an organisation that uses visual and performing arts to help children from disadvantaged communities in India, organised a pre-launch of the “Take it Eazy” programme in collaboration with UNICEF and Directorate of School Education Kashmir, here today.

According to a press note, the event took place in Government Girls Higher Secondary School, Kothi Bagh, Srinagar. The programme was launched by the chief guest, Director School Education of Kashmir, Dr Tassaduq Hussain Mir, and it was attended by teams from the Innovation and Counselling Cell along with the Cultural Wing of the Directorate. During the pre-launch event, the project was introduced to students and teachers in Kashmir.

“Take it Eazy” is a project that aims to address the mental health and wellbeing of adolescents aged 13-17. It uses an innovative storytelling methodology, where two characters discuss and resolve issues of adolescents in a fun and engaging story. Listening to “Take it Eazy” is easy. Students give a missed call to a number (9266617888). An automated call is placed back to their mobile phones and the story of the day is played. Each story is nearly five minutes long. The stories and art activities suggested at the end of every episode help students express their fears, emotions, motivate and learn new positive habits. Similar stories will be created and played for teachers dealing with adolescents - to help them deal with stress and enhance their wellbeing.

Following the pre-launch event, the “Take it Eazy” phone-in programme shall be launched on November 22 across Jammu and Kashmir, Bihar and Jharkhand. “NalandaWay Foundation seeks your support in spreading awareness about this project,” the press note said.
