Hello, he is Ram, a college student. He sees some social problems around locality. Instead of blaming governments he wants to take control and do something for society.

Ram feels helpless because neither he has a team nor guidance to solve these problems. He wants to discuss his ideas but he doesn't know where to go.

He knows how to solve a theoretical problem but he never got a chance to work on the real-life problem.

What does Ram need to have?
Determination and dedication to bring a change in society.
Can devote around 7 hours per week.
Is willing to take up responsibility and fulfill them truthfully.
How can Ram help us?

By participating in initial research work before implementing any social cause.

By reaching out local people/school for implementing planned projects in his locality/college.

By connecting social enthusiast in and around his campus to the Centres Network.

Preseting Proposal to Local Bodies/Municipality/Public School.
