Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

The project is aimed at promoting communal harmony discussion and thought processes amongst college students, especially, D.Ed. and B.Ed. students in and around Mumbai by organizing competitions in elocution, essay writing, etc. ,and camps wherein they can interact with senior Gandhians.

New initiatices include, organizing functions to celebrate festivals together, and other such community based efforts.

Lectures and essay competitions have been conducted as planned and have received attention from a fairly good number of the students in the DEd and BEd colleges. Interactions with the speakers giving the lectures and AID-MN volunteers have lead to discussions on exploring other ways to increase the interaction between youth and children of different communities. One of the suggestions, organizing functions to celebrate festivals together was implemented during the 2004 Diwali - Id.
