Activities Report

Report 2020-2021

Ed club started its activities this year with 56 members. We have done lots of activities throughout the year to boost the young talented entrepreneurs in our college and we have succeeded in creating few entrepreneurs in Agriculture and Cake Baking Fields.

In one way or another Covid 19 Pandemic situation helped to bring out the entrepreneurial talents inside our students. Many students started their own small small business units like Mask making, Cake and cookies Baking units, Agro Entrepreneurship, Soap and Handwash making units etc in their own houses.

It not only helped them to earn by their own, but it helped them to learn how to face, struggle and win even better in a pandemic situation.
