To seep in the theatre skills deeper and wider. With the previous theatre training the master trainers got the professional touch in their skits. They further want to improve their skills and also wish to revise what they have learnt, so as to perfect the Art. RLEK wishes to enhance the capacity of their trainers for preparing skits and role plays which will make them capable of disseminating their social message more clearly and produce more effective skits and plays. By enhancing the capacity and the skills of the Master Trainers of RLEK will help in improving the quality of the skits and plays and therefore increase the chance to get their messages across. RLEK believes that the skits and plays are an impressive tool to impart training as it makes the rural uneducated people understand the deep meaning behind any training. This will help in RLEK’s mission to empower indigenous groups, marginalized populations, women and children to claim their rights and entitlements under the Constitution of India. The performers from the skits and plays are the master trainers, teachers, volunteers and interns. RLEK intends not only to impart a follow-up training to previous participants but also include new participants. Back ground Within its activities, RLEK is giving much training to villagers using skits. The master trainers, as RLEK calls them, are working in different fields. Some are working in governance and gender issues, some for adult education and some in vocational training sector. These programs gather together a large range of subjects like health, community awareness, formal and non-formal education, gender equality etc. As the rate of illiteracy is very high especially amongst women in the rural areas of Uttarakhand, therefore, RLEK believes that social messages with the help of skits and plays are easily understood and disseminated. RLEK Master Trainers organize trainings in both ways, residential and non-residential. The residential ones are at RLEK’s office and non-residential are in the villages. Most of the master trainers are working full time at RLEK. The Master Trainers are supported, while their training, by volunteers and interns. The volunteers who support the master trainers are mainly teachers in the different schools supported by RLEK, working for different communities like the Van Gujjars, tribals, scheduled castes etc.
