Rahul's Story

The training helped him to cultivate experiences of joy, respect and connection. His circle of influence has widened, and he is now able to share positive values on a wider scale.

Rahul has deeply embraced the role of effective Facilitator. In May of 2014, Rahul arrived at a Play for Peace workshop to deliver stationary for his job as an office assistant at CSEI. He was asked to participate in the games and began his journey with Play for Peace. Not only does he feel that Play for Peace activities shape youth for the better, but he also finds that it allows youth to open up and connect with people more easily. This was certainly true for him: Rahul received his first promotion because of his newly acquired skills as a Play for Peace facilitator. The training helped him to cultivate experiences of joy, respect and connection. His circle of influence has widened, and he is now able to share positive values on a wider scale. The promotion also provided him with some financial growth. More importantly, his new roles and responsibilities continually give him challenges and opportunities to grow. Rahul feels that his previous jobs did not merit the same respect as his position with Play for Peace. In this position, he embraces professional processes that value laughter and joy, ones that promote a deep sense of connection with others. In his experience, many traditional workplaces use language in a way that embraces disconnection and dissatisfaction. Play, on the other hand, is always a positive practice: it provides a sense of unity within communities, and allows everyone involved to equally share and participate. From office assistant to vibrant facilitator, Rahul looks forward to new Play for Peace experiences. 10703817_298703743651026_1224880184951060355_n 10696457_930525956974803_5342739461435284564_n 10547774_814555468601146_850579726234231619_o 906360_10153142681539464_4565727507983005107_o
