Unwind Session - Renovating furniture in schools by Kabir Vajpeyi
Kabir Vajpeyi formulated the idea of Building as Learning Aid (BaLA) which aims to change the physical infrastructure in schools to improve the education quality. In this video, he talks about how his concept is to change the mundane and boring school spaces like doors, windows, furniture, walls, etc to colourful and abstract concepts which will be children-friendly. He involves the principal, teachers, school administration, and sometimes the local panchayat and NGOs to make this difference. He also provides examples from two schools where he had already implemented his ideas. The simple innovations and changes in designs of the school classroom and surroundings can bring a great change in the learning process of a child.
Social Entrepreneurship | Unwind Session | InstaOffice
Social Entrepreneurship is the field of study which deals with solving persistent social problems in an innovative and cost-effective way while at the same time, generating profits out of it. The factor which differentiates social entrepreneurship from other entrepreneurships is its core value and its purpose which aims at creating employment opportunities in remote places of the country. Social entrepreneurs are motivated to change the habits and behaviour of the common mass and thus, uplift mankind as a whole by integrating technology and investing their energy in marketing and communication in order to reach out to a greater population.
