Netritva Sadhana is a Certificate Course in Socio-Political Leadership focused on honing and harnessing leadership skills through its academically proven and action-oriented modules. Netritva Sadhana was born out of an acute need for a formal short-term training course or a programme for young professionals and individuals considering either a full-fledged career, active volunteering or association with some social or political organization. Conducted as a 5-day residential course, Netritva Sadhana systematically and structurally introduces youngsters to the world of social work or activism or politics. The training is delivered by social workers, activists, political leaders, acclaimed bureaucrats, and intellectuals, and is coupled with informal interactions and field visits.
