    The ICICI Skills Academy, Chennai provides three types of course, marketing, AC & refrigeration  and home nursing. These courses are given to the students absolutely free of cost. MOHAN Foundation conducted 3 sessions  on Organ Donation to cover all the students (batches of 90, 50 and 45). Ms Vedhika N, and Ms Preetha P, Interns from MMM College of Health Sciences and Dr Hemal Kanvinde of MOHAN Foundation were the resources persons. 


    Mr Soman of the Academy introduced the NGO to the students and welcomed them. The sessions started with a short movie of the Gift of Life, followed by a talk on the Concepts of Organ Donation by the interns. They spoke of the need for organs, which organs and when they can be donated. Explanation of brain death was given. The misconception in society about organ donation was touched upon and how to pledge and get a donor card was also explained. 


    The sessions ended with  a quiz competition called Connections. It was a fun and fruitful activity as it kept the students engaged and everyone participated. At the end of the activity, the winners were given chocolates. 

    Points of discussion were:
