IDS is proud to present “The Social Network” in partnership with “Teach for India”. This initiative is a bridge that connects the youth to various social causes that surround us. Aligning with our organization’s motto, this project aims at creating knowledge and awareness amongst the youth, of the persisting societal issues utilizing dialogue, deliberation, and resolution. Our goal is to collaborate with a non-profit organization that is actively working on one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and helps them achieve their objectives with the help of our youth’s vision.
