The skills required to reach one’s goals in our dynamic socio-cultural climate must also evolve continuously. From utilizing innovation, developing a solution-oriented mentality to critical thinking, these 21st century skills equip young entrepreneurs to take their organization forward.

The participants are also given access to the MASH community to stay ahead with latest opportunities for them to create social impact. After the digital modules training, the program provides an opportunity to intern with leading organizations for 8 weeks, in which the participants get to work with certified NGOs and social sector organizations so that they can gain practical experience.

The diverse modules of the program are designed to polish creative thinking, problem solving, leadership, effective communication and working collaboratively.

What’s even better is that we got to interact with experts every weekend who share their own experiences and insights,” she further adds.
