The assignment was based on Egypt's ways of communication and culture - everyone were not good at speaking but…

My experiences with the SALT Visit

I am sharing a small video where I talk about my experiences with the SALT visits in North Karnataka. This has been a very rich experience for me, as I learnt simultaneously from both the participants and the communities.
