真正的 "变形金刚"

Many think of children as weak individuals who will wither without the aid of adults. But in Nirmala’s school, they view children not as citizens of tomorrow but citizens of today. The children have the right and the power to decide what their future will be. They transform minds and transform the way society views them as powerful learners who can lead change.

很多人把孩子想象成没有了父母的帮助就无法成长脆弱的个体。但是在Nirmala的学校里,孩子们被看作是当今社会的人才,而非一味地被看做是明日社会的栋梁。孩童们有权利也有能力去选择他们的未来。孩子们拥有着改变人们思想的力量,与此同时打破整个社会对他们固有的看法,把他们当做可以引领改变的强有力学习者。
