About the Khoji Programme
Swaraj University is a unique two year self-designed learning program for youth that builds deeper perspectives on self, environment and society. It supports youth to identify their hearts’ vision and build livelihoods true to their talents, dreams and what is needed in the world today.
The program of study at Swaraj University is based on the principles of self-designed learning, which means that learners will direct their learning, driven by their passions, in a nurturing and conducive environment.
In this program, we would not only re-define the processes of learning but also the content and the outcome of the learning. The focus of this program is to prepare youth to start their own ‘green’ ventures in their communities rather than merely getting ‘a job’.
Here learners will get the opportunity to get exposed to and then gain mastery in livelihood streams of action-knowledge that are based on principles of ecological sustainability, localization, social justice and social innovation. Some of the ‘green enterprise’ areas that learners would delve deeply into include, but are not limited to :
- Organic farming and organic stores
- Zero waste crafts
- Community media and publishing
- Self-healing techniques and products
- Cooking with indigenous local grains and health foods
- Eco-building, architecture and alternative energy
- Natural fabrics and fashions
- Beyond schooling and learning for the 21st century
In addition to this, learners will have the choice to participate in workshops featuring basic entrepreneurial skills and other skills such as: communication, facilitation and group dialogue, computers, finance, marketing, cooking, sewing, farming, yoga, film-making, web design and blogging, desktop publishing, writing of proposals and business plans, documentation, working English, etc.
