Teach For India, in collaboration with Cogito Minds (knowledge partner), hosted the TFI MUN 2015 in Mumbai, at the Mukesh Patel School of Technology, Management and Engineering, on Saturday, 7th March, 2015. The event was a huge success, and Cogito Minds’ students (who chaired 3 of the 4 committees), believed that the delegates were absolutely brilliant.
It was a wonderful opportunity for us; not just a learning one, but a chance to interact with different students and try and be a source of inspiration to them. The committee sessions saw Teach For India students putting their best foot forward and impressing the Chairs, whose expectations were surpassed.
The entire conference, from beginning to end, was an experience which we will cherish and remember always. From the opening ceremony to the closing, each moment made us feel right at home. The delegates were informed, diplomatic and confident, and would definitely give us a run for our money in any other conference! The debate and lobbying skills exhibited in committee was fascinating and as Chairs, we truly believed that these students were among some of the best we had ever seen. It was an honour to guide them through the MUN. The conference was truly a marvelous experience, and we look forward to returning next year.
