Take Action to Transform
The first step a human needs to have before taking any action is to know his/her rights, otherwise, the person will be. clueless in society. The transformation only happens when you know your rights, act on your rights and last but not the least share your rights, said miss Richa Chadha. The successful and interactive workshop concluded by taking a pledge to never settle with injustice and always speak up against the wrongdoings.
