Engagement, 17th Feb, 2015
The community engagement programme at UWC Mahindra College enables students to experience the value of service. We are fortunate to be located at the center of Mulshi valley in Pune, India. This setting gives us the opportunity to interact with the local communities, to learn from them and work together. Many of our students work with initiatives such as Akshara, Kruti, Seema Circle, and Sadhana friends to share their skills with and learn from the women, children and men living in the local communities as well as the tribal areas in the valley.
Here, we have got the Street Theatre Project, a student-led initiative, which involves working with young girls in the local community to create space for all things theatre! With theatre professionals as mentors (including our alumna from Beautifulmess), our students engage with the talented girls through workshops & activities to develop skills and use street theatre as a means of raising awareness on gender-based issues.
