Journey Are Endless
Dream of Kalam which is the first programme of Audacious Dreams Science Network (ADSN) in this academic year 2017 – 2018, organized to inspire young students towards achieving “Vision 2020”. In 2016 ADSN organized the same programme in the name of Salaam to Kalam in association with Sathayabama University, Raindropss & Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam international foundation. Last year 2280 students from various educational institutions were participated and explored their talents.
Salaam to kalam’s success gave an enthusiasm to us to organize the same event in this year. This year we have started initial discussion in the earlier June and proposed our plan to our management. Our ever smiling management approved our plan with greater appreciation. That gave the real boost-up to us towards focus our plan and to inspire students same like last year. But this year we have planned lot and formed project deisgn in the advance. Further we have started to reach institution in the middle of June exactly on 13th June 2017. Initially we have focused with 50 institutions & 5000 students to engage in this initiative. From our team Mr.Ganeshan has put his heart and soul into the initiative and who leads the journey with lots of care. From the 13th June to 31st July we have organized Dream of Kalam program in 36 different institutions and 2298 students were engaged. This is an inspirational result. In this great time on behalf of Audacious Dreams Science Network we would like to thank everyone those who have contributed to organize this successful event. Also our special thanks to our lovable management, creative team, volunteers, schools and colleges management and student participants.
