The Thailand Cave Rescue operation and the Kerala Flood rescue operations of 2018 are considered the two most important reclamation operations the world witnessed in the last decade. And now when the world faces COVID-19, the most dangerous pandemic humanity ever experienced, the need and importance of survival skills and rescue management skills are gaining prominence. Even though cognitive skills, communication skills, management skills and survival skills are the most essential skills required for a better living, our basic education system does not develop management skills and survival skills.
Sports & Management Research Institute (SMRI), the premier sports research and training institute in India is now joining hands with Holy Grace Group of Institutions, one of the prominent educational institutions in Kerala based at Mala, Thrissur district to make the Holy Grace Group of Institutions India’s first 100% Survival Skill Literate campus by providing survival skill training to all students. Holy Grace Group of Institutions include school, polytechnic, arts college, engineering college, MBA college and Pharmacy college. Training will be imparted to students from the 5th standard. 3-level training programs including Fitness Management, Emergency Management and Survival Skills will be given focus. The project will start in November 2021.
