Now through June, Play for Peace is partnering with the experiential learning app Kikori to develop a one-stop shop for activity plans -- a project powered by an international group of volunteers dubbed the Content Crew. Meet one of the team members whose time and talents are bringing high-quality activities to facilitators around the world.
Shruthi Mohandas of Minneapolis, USA
Profession: IT Project Manager at DoIT
What do you do on the Content Crew? “I work as a Project Manager Consultant for the Content Crew. I assign activities to the United Nations Volunteers and support them if they face any roadblocks. I keep track of the progress of the project and facilitate weekly meetings with Play for Peace, UNV and Kikori Volunteers.”
What's your favorite Kikorified activity so far, and why? “I like the Self Appreciation cards as it’s a great activity to build your confidence and self-esteem. Practicing being kind to ourselves is something that is often overlooked.”
If you had a blank check to do one thing to bring peace to your community (however you define community), what would you do? “I would love to set up a free meditation and healing retreat for my community as a place where people can meditate, heal and truly reflect on themselves by going inward. I would also host activities where people could interact with each other and build a community with respect and compassion and nurture their authentic selves. I believe that no matter what race, gender or nationality we are from at the core we all want the same thing - to be respected, valued, and loved and to live in harmony.”
