Normally the bastion of the Shalini fellows, this May the IT centre students of West Delhi chose to spread the word on the dangers of tobacco consumption on World No Tobacco Day. A street play got the attention of passersby at the local metro station as the students used the storyline to drive home their point of quitting tobacco usage. The social campaigns are a form of confidence building for the center students and encourage collaboration and team work, valuable workplace skills.
