A workshop was conducted in Sajeelal Secondary School Dullari-Morang, Nepal on 23-30 June 2022 to connect the model of product and service design from the BBIS curriculum to a real-world situation, to develop entrepreneurship skills in the participants (Grade 12), and to design the prototypes of product and services. The workshop, granted by the Community Engagement Division KU, was conducted by the Department of Management Informatics and Communication and was led by Assistant Professor Durga Prasad Dhakal from Kathmandu University. Seven students and two faculties from BBIS delivered and provided knowledge, skills, and materials to the Sajeelal Secondary School as input.

Participants found community problems namely 1) Drug abuse, 2) Women violence, 3) Queuing problems in the public service area, 4) Waste mismanagement, 5) unemployment in the local community, and 6) impure drinking water.
