PGDM students from IFIM Business School, Bangalore along with Khula Aasman Trust, Mumbai, conducted a 3-hour workshop with children in Lallubhai compound. The workshop focused on creating a space to explore and enhance leadership skills and develop interpersonal bonds. This was part of their 10-day Social Immersion Program (SIP) mandated by the B school, for which they have been placed with Khula Aasman Trust (KA). The trust has been working in Lallubhai compound with children and women for the last four years, working to build resilience and create safe spaces to play, learn and grow together as a community, through art and play. This workshop was planned after visiting the area and conducting a small survey to understand the needs and lives of the youth in the area. Approximately 40-50 students participated in the same. It was a mix of indoor and outdoor games, and the conducted in smaller groups owing to space constraints. One of the highligh-ts of the day was a scavenger hunt planned around the community and buildings the participants move arou-nd in every day. The participants along with the facilitators reflected on the meaning of leadership and the quali-ties that define a leader, as well as what it means to work in a team, how to create and work towards achieving goals as well.  The students Deeksha, Anjali, Brishti, Swapnil, Nitesh, Kartik and Abhishek provided the partici-pants with an example of how this could be possible. This was an abso-lutely fun, novel and immensely en-riching experience for the participants.
