The foundation of Parisar Asha, India’s finest Environmental Education Centre was laid in 1982 by Ms. Gloria de Souza. She turned down lucrative business career opportunities to teach and found an educational system that augmented student’s creativity, motivation to learn, problem-solving capacity, and faith in India. Gloria created and introduced modern experiential education that challenged students to think and solve problems together instead of chanting facts. Her core contribution has not been to invent modern education but to adapt it, to make it attractive to everyone in non-Western settings. Her patient work of adoption, persuasion, training, and organizing spread her impact widely.
Our mission to provide a joyful, holistic and child centric quality education through the environment,for the environment, that will empower children to be creative, sensitive & successful positive global citizens.
