Testimonials by students below :
“I was mesmerized by the exhibition organized by BSG. It was my first ever virtual experience. I literally had GOOSEBUMPS while watching how BSG contributes towards the society and hearing the stories of people across the globe. Also I learnt today that ‘Knowledge alone cannot create value’. Wisdom is also required to have a sense of choosing between right and wrong. We can together work for the welfare of the society by combining both knowledge and wisdom. I would like to attend more such events in future. It was a great experience!”

“Their spirit of ‘The Power of One’ really resonated with me throughout the session. They beautifully how important it is for us humans to save and protect our nature, live with Peace and kindness, and do whatever we can to create equal opportunities for all. The 17 SDGs are formed with the spirit to leave no one behind, and I for one was really inspired by that. This session has motivated me to put in my all and just take the first step forward to create a change, the rest of the path will clear itself.”
