Siddharth Pandiya is the founder of Debate for Change. Siddharth has not only turned out to be an exemplary public speaker but also come up with this voice-based portal which hosts live debates.
When Siddharth was younger, he loved to watch his seniors participate in debates and now that he is in the same position, he thinks that he should do something to make things easier for his juniors.
The online platform, Debate for Change (DFC), encourages debaters across the globe to continue the practice even outside the surroundings of schools. After registering on the portal for free, debaters can connect with other participants from across the world and engage in debates on topics ranging from politics to history and sports. A week into the website's launch, around 120 users had already signed up.
He has plans to add more features to the portal. “Soon, DFC will have a video function, which will facilitate face-to-face debates. I will also add an option for clubs to organize debate tournaments”, says Siddharth.
