Started as a social cause in 2015, Paakhi,the social initiative of MindSpark has aimed to help women embrace their true potential.
Through Paakhi we intend to innovate, strategize and execute measures that would touch a million lives and inspire a sense of responsibility towards the world at large.
We intend to produce a ripple effect which will grow with every edition of MindSpark. From grassroot activism to worldwide action, we are entering an exciting period of history where the world expects balance between the two genders. We notice its absence and celebrate its presence. So here’s to making a difference!
This year Paakhi is aimed at empowering young girls by introducing them to the world of programming.
This time, we intend to teach young girls app development and conduct a self-defence workshop for them.
The self-defense workshop will teach participants how to use everyday items such as pens, keys and belts as weapons as well as basic karate moves to defend themselves.
The app development workshop will show participants how to create apps in just 30 minutes using our easy drag-and-drop interface.
