There are many problems in this world that influence a considerable number of the individuals within our society. The competition Action plan at Abhyuday, IIT Bombay is a platform to provide a sustainable solution model to the social problems by engaging with the community and stakeholders.
Aimed at encouraging youth towards solving social issues with their innovativeness, we have effectively directed the past 3 versions of A-Plan competition. Action Plan Competition, 2016 covered about 20 states and 40 cities with the participation of 400+ teams including over 2000 students & Professionals from around 1500 colleges across the nation.
In order to have sustainable and impactful solutions, we propose to tackle the challenges that should be in the lines of Social Entrepreneurship led models Activism/Not-for-Profit/ For-Profit.
All the teams will be mentored and guided by professionals who have been working in the social sector, in addition to many NGOs who have been working at grassroots levels for past many years. This effort would make teams of A-Plan, grounded in their approach, rounded in their functioning and a step forward to eliminating inefficiencies and sufferings.
