Through our campaigns and activities in the social media we shall try to carry the success stories of these indomitable, invincible men and women to every doorstep. The campaign will carry out across the country various programmes like cycle and torch rallies and marathons and will end with a three-day long carnival. To keep the development of these ''invincible men and women'' unhindered there will be a call to raise and collect funds.''
