Empowered students are highly motivated to view the opportunities as stepping stones towards success. Vidya Social Empowerment Center (VSEC) has been initiating various motivational and awareness sessions to empower the pillars of society. As a continuum, a session was held at SoS Village Mulayam on 08 April  2023. The opportunity at this village was put forward by our Dean of Academics, Dr. Sudha Balagopalan, as a part of extending the  IEEE Smart Village, Vocational Training Programme sessions to schools of contact under VSEC and Brahma Vidya.
