Hyderabad: Student Islamic Organization (SIO) Telangana state would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the students’ and youth focused, state level conference titled Igniting Change- “The journey towards social reconstruction through Enlightenment, Engagement, Empowerment”.
“The objective of the conference is to discuss issues that are plaguing society, ensuing process of destruction and its impacts on various social spheres and to understand the way forward to stop this deterioration, and give constructive direction to those who want good.” Said Dr Talha Faiyazuddin (State President, SIO Telangana)
The conference also aims to educate the masses about their role in social change. The process of social change cannot be effective, or even complete in any aspect until there is a collective struggle towards it.
Even small social changes need a holistic and multi-dimensional approach. It is a process that requires enlightenment about the purpose and foundations for change, engagement with multiple stakeholders according to their potential, and overall empowerment of individuals and the society to be able to contribute to social change and reconstruction, whilst being immune to fear or hopelessness.
