SOCIAL WELFARE COMMITTEE
Social Welfare Committee is one of the four units of social outreach services practised in Shri Shikshayatan College. The main objective of the committee is to build empathy among young minds which will help them to think and work for the benefit of a wide section of the society .
During the last five years, Social Welfare Committee has been able to develop awareness among the students regarding their social responsibilities-towards children with special needs and towards the elderly. The students used to visit Nirmala Shishu Bhavan at regular intervals to spend quality time with children with special needs during the years 2017-18 and 2018-19 and ‘Navaneer’, an old age home in Chetla, performing cultural programmes and interacting with the inmates during 2017-18 and 2018-19.
Other than the above mentioned visits, Social Welfare Committee in collaboration with the N.G.O. SANCHAR organized the ‘Wish Tree Project’ just before Durga Puja on the day of ‘Shree’, to fulfil the wishes of the underprivileged children in 2018 and 2019.A health camp was organized in collaboration with ‘Asthma and Allergy Research Centre’ in December, 2018 where the students took an active part. In November 2019, a blood donation camp was organised in collaboration with the other social outreach services where members of the Social Welfare Committee volunteered. They donated blood themselves and also encouraged students to come forward to this noble cause.
All these activities were performed by the involved students with utmost dedication and enthusiasm which have helped in their holistic development and prepared them for their future lives.
