Are you ready to become a Little Light Coach?

Build self-awareness,
understanding, and compassion

The core goal of our coaching programme is to heighten an individual’s level of self-awareness through exploration, self-reflection and inspired action.

Through the coaching programme, individuals will gain a deeper understanding of the divinity within themselves and the path to their purpose, be able to connect more meaningfully with others, and strengthen their sensitivity and mindfulness.

Coach Development

Help children realize their vision of
Self and their potential

This core goal becomes the foundation on which coaches can offer warm, compassionate and safe spaces to facilitate children and young adults on their own path of self-discovery.

Cultivating this mindset in children sets them up for their journey towards fulfilling their potential as conscious human beings.

Become reflective, evolving
and responsible adults

Little Light Coaches who are working on their own evolution and personal mastery are in a favorable position to shape young minds.

They will be able to guide people to lead their authentic lives rooted in happiness, build better societies, and actively participate in conserving and protecting the environment.

Coach Development

“The idea is not to offer answers, but steer children towards asking the right and relevant questions so that they arrive at their own solutions. The path towards empowering others has been the biggest learning for me.”

Meet Your Coaches

Ritu Khoda

Co-Founder, Little Light

Ritu Khoda, coach, social entrepreneur, award-winning author, producer of critically acclaimed films, TEDx speaker, and founder of Art1st and Little Light.

Inspired by her son’s interaction with art in his early years, Ritu’s passion for the visual arts met pedagogy, and Art1st was born. Art1st holds the child at the centre and balances the pillars of Art Education, Advocacy and Policy, and Publications and Films. Ritu began challenging the existing paradigm of a myopic outlook of arts in schools by developing a full-fledged Visual Arts Curriculum for PreK to Grade 8.

She created a common platform for sharing new thinking and research in art education through initiatives at various levels- Interactive lab for preschoolers, Studio Explorations for elementary school children, the Partner a Master: Artist-Mentor Program for teenagers, and the Open Minds platform for educators. Through these initiatives, she has been able to systematise art education at the school level, enhance the capabilities of teachers and define new standards for teaching and learning arts at the school level. To complement the Art Education Program, she introduced children to the exciting world of Indian visual art through her award-winning books Raza’s Bindu, Ambadas’s Dancing Brush, and Eye Spy Indian Art, and has produced critically acclaimed films on Indian artists.

Little Light, on the other hand, grew from Ritu’s spiritual practice and compassion toward children. Through her pedagogical experience through Art1st, Little Light was built around the Pedagogy of Self, a curriculum that seeks to make children more centred and balanced in a world concentrated on its extremes.

Ritu holds a master’s degree in business administration from IIM Kolkata and a B.A. (Hons.) in Psychology from Lady Sri Ram College, New Delhi.
