A Better Start, A Better Life - Leadership Training for Disadvantaged Students

The Rotary Education Fund recently teamed up with Training Consultant Shankar Santhiram to help disadvantaged students on a leadership training camp. Aside from receiving a monthly bursary and enjoying one-on-one mentoring from the Rotary Education Fund, the hand-picked students from disadvantaged backgrounds have also been taking part in leadership and education camps. Three students join us in the studio, along with Shankar Santhiram and Rotary Club Project Director Mike Carr to talk about the project and how it has benefited these kids.
