Activities include dice-breaking sessions, jam sessions, song composition and practice sessions, working with mood meters, performing to the different songs and group recitals.”

The objective is to enable these new student leaders to go home, open their own Amani Project clubs and invite their friends to learn about emotional intelligence and making music. We have started in Delhi this year and will be expanding across India in the years to come.”
