Alone Together: An action research paper by adolescents of Aangan Trust by Atiya Bose, CEO
During lockdown in 2020, 18 young women, all between 17-20 years got together remotely, using zoom, email, Whatsapp and voice calls – to explore the issue of loneliness in urban adolescents. The paper uses a participatory research methodology to talk about how adolescents constantly go through a feeling of loneliness, more so during the time of the pandemic. It also gives some practical solutions or suggestions on how we can continue to be there for our children and create spaces for them to share ideas, thoughts, and perspectives. Join us in a webinar discussing the research paper with Atiya Bose, CEO of Aangan Trust.
