Spark India 2021

This year, our main theme was digital skills and our 3 partners KrantiSafeCity and Mijwan Welfare Society set up some fantastic virtual projects for everyone. Kranti were looking for a team to digitise their curriculum; SafeCity had national datasets on gender-based violence to visualise, and Mijwan Welfare Society wanted students to help design a mobile app for rural job seekers. Our 10 University of Southampton students were joined by 10 Ahmedabad University students in India, and throughout the programme, were supported by alumni, including EnvoPAP Founder & CEO, Kaushal Shah & Co-founder & Managing Director of Sagar Energy Solutions, Andreas Ovstrovsky. Each student received 1:1 and group mentoring sessions from Dr. Pathik Pathak, heard from social entrepreneurs such as ElsaMarie D'Silva, and received free personal development workshops including Ikigai - Finding meaningful work, Data Visualisation & Working Internationally.
