She then familiarized students about the workshop they are going to attend and discussed what expectancy of students is in this particular cause of organ donation. Also she informed the ways students can collaborate to support this noble cause of organ donation. She also took the second session of Mind Mapping Activity and told students to discuss all the positive and negative thoughts coming in their mind related to organ donation. Through this activity the doubts in students just popped out in simple manner & they could also share the things which they usually hesitate to ask.

    Next session was held by Dr Jimmy about the concepts of Organ and tissue donation. She explained the types of death viz. Cardiac and Brain Death and the organs and tissues that can be donated. She elaborated the procedure about bone donation which was new topic for the students. She also described that tissue donation (skin & eyes) can happen even at home which caught attention of the crowd and everybody started asking queries related to tissue donation which were answered promptly. She also discussed about Organ Donations that can happen in case of Brain Dead case and number of lives that can be saved by giving the examples of successful transplant stories articles and news about green corridor which was somewhat familiar to the students. Then Mr Nitin Tambe discussed about the religious barrier and myths related to organ donation.

    As the students got aware about the whole process of organ donation we proceeded towards the activity of writing a thank you letter keeping the emotions felt by donors when they receive organs & live their second life. Many students participated in this activity and wrote very heart touching letters which were narrated later.

Also they were invited to speak about the whole process of organ donation & feedback about the workshop. About 126 students attended the Workshop & about 40 students took pledge.
