So, these are the activities done for our 7th exposure on November-December 2019. Other than that, we conducted a parol making contest in which the materials used are residuals, recyclables and indigenous materials. We also spearheaded a fundraising activity called “Run for TuboRUN” an 8km fun run. We hope for a successful fundraising activity and upcoming activities and we thank in advance for those who will participate.
