Diksha Ahi, a Teach for India fellow has started with the very first Lean In Junior chapter in New Delhi, India. She works in a low income community called Tigri in New Delhi. 38 girls in her classroom got inspired by the idea of Lean In while reading about Sheryl Sandberg and got motivated to start with Lean In circles within their classroom. They plan to gradually spread to other classrooms and community. The kids suggested that there are various ways through which these 5th graders can Lean In. They think that problems like learning disabilities in students, retention power, family issues, confidence issues and other community related problems can be solved through these circles. They want to explore more opportunities, develop leadership qualities and expand their horizon through these circles. They want to impact young girls around them and also help their mothers deal with issues. They want to set strong examples of student leadership through these circles.
Diksha along with her friend Abhishek Jain (who volunteers in her class) is going to mentor these young kids.
