Volunteers will be identified and trained at Chapter level for maintaining school relations. CBSE schools will be approached to introduce AFS as an educational institution offering ICL via intra/ inter school fun activities, Parent Teacher Meetings and Inter- city class exchanges. Teachers would be provided with ICL training in target schools. Feedback of the pilot project would be collated, impact assessment would be conducted and CBSE board will be approached for endorsements.
