SIHI students participated in a workshop hosted by Dr Sachin. They had the opportunity to interact with other local students who have struggled with stammering problems and ask them a lot of questions. SIHI students also practiced their active listening skills when communicating with stammering students and learned that communication is a two way phenomenon. The workshop was both educational and interactive, and helped to eliminate the misunderstanding and myths regarding the stammering problem.

SIHI students visited Brahampuri which is situated at Rishikesh. It is a colony set up to provide a place for people with leprosy to live and work. SIHI students watched them making items such as carpets and yoga mats. The students were impressed to find that, despite having been ostracized by society due to their disfigurement, people with leprosy can still find a means to make a living at Brahampuri.
