CHALLENGES FOR THE YOUTH-Program On Health Awareness

In today’s fast-moving world there are many challenges faced by young people...information technology gives access to much knowledge which may or may not be factually correct. Hence we believe in reaching out to young people with opportunity for personal interaction to solve their doubts. For this we arranged a program with Salaam Balak Trust, in a street children’s shelter home run by MCGM with an NGO.

TIME : 1.30 to 4.00 pm
