About Rama Life
Rama Life is a not-for-profit, Community Interest Company.
We are primarily a centre for education and have the agility to be able to run from one of premises or in a mobile capacity.
Our vision is providing positive learning spaces for young people and adults – giving the opportunity to discover and develop skills and build self-confidence.
Rama Life consists of a highly skilled team of employees and volunteers and have a strong connection with the communities we are located in.
Education can be obtained in many different ways – it is impossible to go a day without a learning opportunity – be it through conversation, experience, practice, study or self reflection.
Rama Life dispel the myth that education can only be obtained through traditional routes and we use groups, workshops, discussion groups and clubs to provide a wide variety of learning opportunities, all within a positive framework.
Why the name?
Rama is the Scouting name of Rama Life’s founder, Jenn Hodge.
In the Cub section, leaders traditionally take names from The Jungle Book.
Rama is the wolf father in the Film and a water buffalo in the book.
The name Rama is also associated with a Goddess.
(Jenn prefers this comparison, rather than the water buffalo).
The name derives from Ram meaning:
Stop, stand still, rest, rejoyce, be pleased.
She thought this was all fairly positive so went for it… but for anyone that knows her, the irony will not be lost. Her inability to stop, stand still or rest, is fairly well known.
Our core belief is that self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence are the foundation for happiness and productivity.
We believe that by working together we can achieve more, feel good about ourselves and support each other.
Rama Life know that being outdoors can clear your mind, lighten your mood and improve your health – inside and out.
