Teambuilding Games at an Orphanage in India
April 21, 2005
A couple of months ago Rich Swannell called me from Pirth, Australia (Rich found me through a mutual friend). He said he was headed to Southern India to begin an amazing project.
Rich is teaching a hand picked group of children at the Hebron Children's Home to trade on the US stock market with the goal being to help make the orphanage and community self-sustaining financially. This project will take years to see through to the end.
Rich is teaching the children how to work as an investment team and is using the resources at TeachMeTeamwork.com to help him learn how to teach in a memorable way.
A group is documenting this project and Rich sent me some video of one of the initial team training sessions.
I had tears in my eyes as I watched these children participate in teambuilding activities taught to them by Rich who had learned them at TeachMeTeamwork.com. This was one of the greatest gifts I've ever received.

Do you have an inspirational story you'd like to share about how you're using teambuilding to change lives? Please send me your story and I might just write about it in this blog.
