The main objective of this Social Outreach Programme was to provide assistance to the poor and the marginalized and contribute to the integral development of them with in the capabilities of our college in order to meet their physical and psychological needs. It also sensitizes the students about the the realities of the society and to develop people oriented attitudes and concern for others.
The students of III BCA (A, B, C sections) and III BSC (CSMS/CSME) visited Thrithwa Ashram (Birds of the Air) on 3rd, 4th, 7th and 9th September 2015 respectively as part of the social outreach programme. The students of each class were accompanied by two faculty members. The students were in the ashram from 2 to 4 PM on these days interacting with the inmates. The inmates of Thrithwa Ashram are women who are differently abled and are taking daily medications. These inmates are brought here from streets, railway stations, and some rehabilitation centres. Some were also physically challenged. All the inmates lived like a family and the volunteers took very good care of them. The students supported the ashram by providing food items, toiletries. The students also entertained them by few cultural programmes and also conducted several games for the inmates. The inmates actively participated with the students in all the activities. Most of them were very talented and exhibited their talent to the students. The students could inculcate the habit of helping the needy and creating the respect for the society they live in.
Every student had a new experience of life where they could meet people who are entirely different from those whom they met every day. Most of the students interacted with the inmates without any hesitation. All the students tried their best to keep the inmates happy and they were successful in it.
