The sessions ended on a positive note with lot being discussed in the given stringent timeframe. It made us believe that everyone can learn the skills and techniques they need to increase their level of confidence and performance in key areas discussed at sessions.

Prior conducting the sessions, a registration google document to be filled was distributed within the social media by inviting all who are interested in learning these things, nearly 200 participants registered for the event. All the members of the club helped for the marketing campaign by sharing them through social media.

This is a new step towards many future collaborations. One of the main inspirations behind this project is to unite the people of different districts who are linked to different organizations as we all have the capacity to learn from each other and plenty of room to improve in different aspects.
