Seven Sisters Development Assistance

Celebrating 10 years of SeSTA

We have completed a decade of service in the rural northeast and to celebrate our journey we welcome all the students of NE by organising an Inter Institute Competition. We at SeSTA believe that by the evolution of New India, the students with their fresh and innovative ideas can identify challenges and address to real-time issues in the grassroots level. Through this competition we would like to encourage our young minds to explore our rural NE, its beauty, its challenges, its hardships, the socio-economic gap and the measures that can be initiated.

SeSTA would love to act as an incubator in their problem-solving skills, so that it will be a win-win for both the rural population and the participants.
