For the social and family environment they cannot get any scope to delegate their creativity as they have creative mentality. So they do not think them important person of the society. They never think that they have an ability to give something to the society. They never think “We can”. BITA try to help the underprivileged children for delegate their creativity and to grow self confident with them. Then the children should think that they have to do something for the society, for the family. This is also a workshop for the children to do something better, to learn something better. 15 learners of BITA Beltoli Ananda school whereas 10 girls and 5 boys participated in the workshop.
