Review

I vividly recall the time I landed in Mumbai. I covered a distance of 15,000 kilometres to be in the city of dreams , a city that never sleeps. I had a burning passion to witness and hopefully be a part of the social impact Industry, as I had read a lot about them . Finally, I was here in this City, a dream had finally come true.
After the initial culture shock , I got acclimatized to the city, which welcomed me with open arms. Through the next couple of days , I learnt about microfinance, clean tech, gender, women’s empowerment and livelihood. I learnt so much and it was truly a defining moment for me. The conclusion I reached was unequivocal, How do I give back ? How can I use my abilities for the upliftment of society ?
But I had a lot to learn still and so with that objective in mind, I participated in local initiatives like marketing, fundraising, finance etc. I was particularly impressed with hackathons.
For the traveler and the curious, this opportunity is golden . These social impact journeys are week long expeditions of discovery and insights in the land of India, which is truly majestic. It gave me a tremendous sense of fulfillment and purpose to use my talents and skills for the betterment of the society.
