Film Screening: Awaaz
Media Trust would like to invite young people aged 18-25 to a special screening event of films made by young Indian filmmakers, as part of the Global360 Filmmaking Challenge.
We set a brief that asked filmmakers to create short films or TV shows highlighting how international aid is helping to improve lives in India. The films also demonstrate where aid is needed, and aim to change the opinions of people in the UK: that aid does work, and it is effective when it’s well spent.

On 30th Sept 2012 during VERVE 2012, the Annual Literary and Youth Fest of NIT Durgapur, Team BMEP organized a Scavengers Hunt Event for the 49 Bihari More kids. The brigade of kids was divided into teams of fives with some had six members in it. Each team had a student volunteer as mentor. The Scavengers hunt was a game of clues, creativity, IQ, aptitude, art and the teams hunted down the puzzles to finish at their standing positions. The game of fun and frolic ended with some refreshments and moments to cherish. The volunteers had a tough time to go through each and every entry, but it was an absolute fun to connect back to childhood.
The Event was planned to develop the talent and skills in our mentored kids.
