Season 02 - Episode 08
Project FUEL, founded in 2009 by Deepak Ramola, collects life lessons from people all over the world and turns them into interactive and performance activities, to pass on the learnings. The passing on happens by way of workshops, seminars, and sometimes even over coffee.
Every life is important and so is what each person's life teaches them. At FUEL, life lessons are continuously collected, documented, thought about deeply and then turned into performance activities. This ensures that you don't just hear someone's lesson in words but experience it tangibly, and apply it practically in your own life. The organization seeks to build a community of young adults who live, learn and share in order to make meaningful psycho-social and emotional contribution to their lives, and the society at large.
A life lesson that comes to us from another human being can shine light on the understanding of our own life. Hence the name FUEL, which stands for Forward the Understanding of Every Life Lesson.
Project FUEL - The Story
We conduct life skills workshops using an eclectic mix of performance and interactive mediums like theatre, storytelling, creative writing and spoken word poetry. Along with workshops we also pass on the learnings through blogs, short films, community events and conferences. Our mission is to make each life count and to touch as many lives through our varied approach. Our work contributes towards enhanced emotional quotient, communication skills, embracing ones vulnerability and strength and heightened self-awareness – an element we consider key in positively influencing every area of one’s life.
The Masterpiece Tour is our flagship annual program under which we travel from anywhere between 6 days to 3 months to a different community/country to conduct back-to-back workshops with different institutions, and create a pool of extraordinary life lessons. Learnings from day 1 spill over to day 2 spill over to day 3 and so on, eventually creating a unique masterpiece.
FUEL conducts life lesson workshops at organizations, corporates and educational institutions. The workshops include interactive and performance activities devised from life lessons of people from around the world. These workshops are always high on fun, emotions, acceptance and “aha!” moments.
