About the Workshop:
This workshop aims at transforming students into changemakers by enabling them to convert their assignments, activities, ideas or research work into implementable solutions. During this workshop we will be telling students about various topics available that they can start working upon and come up with a concrete action plan to initiate live project work. We shall also be exposing them to opportunities by offering them to come on board and work with us on our ongoing projects.
