Here, the 20 beneficiaries were further divided into two different groups of twelve and eight based on their choice of their interesting packages or skills in two classes all in the morning, 9am-1pm to ease facilitation and understanding as well as improving student-centred learning. This phase was aimed at making the beneficiaries to learn digital entrepreneurship skills like Graphic design and infographics (Class A) Photography and Film and Video Editing (FAVE) in class B.
