Joy of Giving
Joy of Giving instills in people the act of giving to others and ensures the experience of joy of giving. The event was conducted from 24th February 2016 to 29th February 2016. The event mainly entailed on the act of giving something back to the society by the students of SIBM Pune. The event had multiple ways to give back to the society – helping the visually challenged special friends selling their chocolates, raising money through selling donuts and donating it to the war widows association, collecting books and clothes and donating them to the needy.
To start off, SECC tied up with Niwant Andh Mukta Vikasalay to set up a stall selling chocolates made by Visually- Challenged children. Chocolate making is one of the vocational activities conducted at Niwant where visually Impaired students at NAMV make, wrap and sell the chocolates.
On Day two, MOD donuts were sold by the SECC members during the SPL finals. Students Celebrated Joy of Giving by buying a donut for their dearest one. The proceeds of the fund raised were donated to the War Widows Association. WWA works for the welfare of the war affected families.
From Day three onwards, Collection Drive was being organized. Donation boxes were set up at various places in the campus. Students came forward and donated their used/unused books, clothes and other valuables. The proceeds from the drive are collected and will be given to those in need.
