About the host:

Pragesh is a BBA graduate by education and an educator and people’s person by passion. Currently he is working as a Relationship Manager at Karkhana. He is a person that loves travelling and interacting with people. He believes that there must come a change in the way the children are being taught in school. The traditional way of teaching, confined in a classroom must change. Important learning happens beyond the four walls. Anu is a social worker by education and an educator at heart. Currently she is working as a Province Director at Karkhana. She enjoys adventure and loves spending time interacting and tinkering with children. She wants to empower girls into making by providing them opportunities to make their ideas alive. She believes that if the children are given the right guidance and the right opportunity, they are capable of designing our future.

About the event:

As Karkhana has been working to promote hands-on education, we think the kind of work Designathon Works is doing is more or less similar. We believe in the importance of giving students practical learning experiences and problem-solving skills, which is why GCD is important and we wanted to collaborate with Designathon Works.

This idea prevents crops from being destroyed by elephants, so that farmers can grow food crops instead of tobacco. Tobacco is not consumed by elephants si it is easier to grow. The invention is a 4 layer defense system around fields: a set of beehives, a ring of chili pepper plants, a bamboo hedge and a wire of some sort. This protective system prevents the crops being destroyed and tobacco farmland can be used for food crops.

This team invented a car where plants are grown on the roof of the car! This way, land space is saved.

This team thought of a fridge, powered by solar, through which you can share your food leftovers with the community.
