The portal brings Gandhi’s life story to educate and inspire children through audios and videos by creatively integrating facts, games and quizzes.
A freedom fighter, a visionary and a leader, Gandhi’s life is filled with lessons that are imperative even in today’s scenario, it said.
Games and quizzes have been designed to drive the visitors to know more about Gandhi and how they could put his message to practice in their own lives.
Unlike text books, the portal provides an interactive, innovative and technology driven platform.
The Twitter Conference saw hundreds of tweets coming in from several countries around the world, that were answered by Sam Pitroda – @pitrodasam and Jahanvi Prasad – @jprasada, Founder, Youth 4 Gandhi Foundation.
