Project AKSHAR is our flagship project under the aegis of NSS which focuses on experiential learning through community outreach programmes. AKSHAR is unique in terms of how it provides a space for consistent engagement and mentoring of underprivileged children from the neighbourhood by our student volunteers. It underlines the institution’s commitment to meaningful and consistent social intervention, as well as to its commitment of the need to inculcate a strong sense in our own students of a wholistic, social consciousness and connectedness with underprivileged communities. This programme is completely self-financed.
AKSHAR has been a consistent, long-term endeavour ever since its inception in 2017. It is a collaborative programme, with faculty and a dedicated team of student volunteers. It is unique in that it is an intensive and consistent programme. AKSHAR volunteers work with underprivileged children all year round, taking special care during the examinations. The fact that AKSHAR carried on its work even when the college per se was not open to students over the past half year or so, bears testimony to its commitment.
