“We must accept finite disappointment but never lose infinite hope.” by Martin Luther King
Speranza was launched as a pedestal to create a generation of strong willed, self-reliant and aware youth, capable of discovering new paths and leaving behind their own trail, a trail leading to newer, brighter horizons. There exists a burning flame in each individual to something worthwhile, which can affect their own life and society. This flame is fuelled by hope and faith, and providing this requisite fuel is what Speranza is about.
Speranza, in the course of a three-day period, achieves its mission of holistic development of individuals through various workshops, talkshows, interactive sessions, a mélange of cultural activities. There is always more than one facet of a diamond, and as individuals we all have a distribution of characteristics. Overall development implies working on each facet of our being and personality, polishing of each facet can only ensure a flawless diamond.
Speranza, in its 5th year, envisages to acknowledge the proliferating passion in the youth about social welfare. This year, we are returning with a strong motive and even higher targets. Speranza 2013 has come up with a motto Spirit. Passion. Zeal. The three words of wisdom. Speranza 2013 will be a unique opportunity to let everyone explore their inner self; discover their passion and return to life with greater zeal.
