We care about mother earth

We at Ahuja Foundation organized a debate "Is GMO good for India". This was our endeavour to do our bit towards our mother earth.
The event was organized on 27th August 2015 at Chaudhary charan singh National Institute of Agricultural Marketing (NIAM)

It was done in collaboration with N.I.A.M and Fortis.

We returned back with a feeling of a job well done and with plans to hold more such events in future.

Closely contested debate - 3 teams for "Yes, GMO is good for India" and 3 teams for "No, GMO is not good for India". Based on debate quality and presentation, a team from the No group was the winner, closely followed by a team from the Yes group. Judges' decision: "Inconclusive" if GMOs are good for India...
