“Help people become more of who they already are, don’t make them more like you.”
NSS NIT Calicut organized Aavishkar’19, a social initiative of @tathva_nitcalicut . This two-day mentorship program wrapped in fun and fervor was attended by 7th to10th-grade students of Ekalavya Government Model Residential School, Painav on 30th and 31st November 2019. We took them beyond the books and helped them realize what they are best at through science experiments, film screening, career guidance, games, art, origami and cultural sessions along with a hands-on robotics and drone making workshop. We were honored by the presence of the District Collector, Mr. H Dineshan.
More than mentors, we were companions to them, talking, learning and doing activity sessions with them, who could turn their “intangible dreams” to “attainable goals”. After those couple of days, we could see the passion in their eyes, confidence in their face and determination in their words.
