Their journey and experiences of the team:

“There are a lot of small traders in our society suffering due to the e-retail invention, by helping them to increase their profit has paved the way for us to get new opportunities.

We understood that it’s easier to find a solution to a problem within a group than finding a solution alone. We were able to work with people with different thoughts, it was a great experience.

Also, we learned how to find solutions for complicated problems and how to be in a group through the camp and helped increase my confidence and abilities.”

Edunet Foundation has been implementing several upskilling programs along with IBM and DGT (Directorate General of Training), for the teaching and student community alike, and we look forward to doing more in the future.

We hope that this experience has enriched their problem-solving skills and got prowess in team project works.
