Light & Spark NPO is a non-profit educational initiative event that aims at teaching IT/Computer-Science students industry-relevant technologies like WordPress, Microsoft Azure, Agile Scrum, Google Analytics and much more, and also help them build a website for an NGO/Non-Profit over a period of 2 days.
For students, these 2-days will be a learning experience that will be guided by our 4 capable mentors and an overall mentor. Students will learn by doing things practically in a simulated work-like environment consisting of other team members (students whom they might have not met before), a design team, the client representatives (in this case, the participating NGO) and their mentor.
For NGO’s/charities, this event will help them get an online presence and various other technological benefits offered by non-profit programs, and thus, allow them to excel in the field they have been working tirelessly in and reach out to as many people possible.
As much as the mentors are excited to share their knowledge with other budding IT professionals, they are also learning a lot by challenging themselves to learn and teach these concepts in a way that the students understand better. These 2-days also add a lot of experience & exposure to each mentors’ CV not only because of their technical contribution but also the efforts they have put in to ensure that the event runs smoothly.
