The LEaders Accelerating Development (LEAD) program strives to build problem solving and entrepreneurial aptitudes among university students. LEAD's mission is simple and impactful: have students take up issues of concern and implement solutions in a stipulated time frame. LEAD at Ek Soch works with the college youth of Varanasi district to help them to build their leadership skills, innovative approach and entrepreneurial mindset.
Leadership project is work done by a person or group of people that benefits others and themselves. It is often done near the area where you live, so your own community reaps the benefits of your work. You do not get paid to perform community service, but volunteer your time.
Your initiative can help many different groups of people: children, senior citizens and people with disabilities, even animals and the environment.
Many students take initiative because they enjoy helping others and for self-development.
