Its student power all the way. What do you get when a big group of enthusiastic students are out there working for the welfare of the society and encouraging slum children to showcase their talent through painting? The answer is AIESEC, an international student organisation.

With the twin cities having over 60 students from various colleges enrolled in AIESEC, they have organised several events including foreign internship programmes, painting competitions and take up projects concerning social issues- to name a few. Such events are conducted during different times of the year by members of AIESEC, not to mention conferences where the big-wigs of the corporate world are invited to talk about various issues.

The painting competitions organised by AIESEC under the banner, ‘Bala Kalakar’, will be held on November 23. “We are expecting over 5,000 under privileged children to participate in the event and we will have our foreign interns working on the Bala Kalakar project too,” says Mohammed Salahuddin, vice-president of communication and information management, AIESEC, Hyderabad. Apart from such events, AIESEC organises foreign internships, International Traineeship Exchange Programme for students and young professionals.
