Inclusive Social Awareness:
Many institutions work towards improvement of the relatively unpriviledged sections of the society. However, there is always a subtle line of separation between “them” and “us”. Community service day aims at bridging this gap by inviting the students into our daily lifes for a day and having fun with them, eating with them, playing with them.

How is the day celebrated?
The day starts with the bus going to the Adivasi school and bringing the kids to PiCA in a college bus. The kids introduce themselves and head for lunch. The lunch is followed by different activities which the kids enjoy.

Activities conducted this year were both for fun as well as entertainment and skill building.

  1. Ganesha Idol from clay
  2. Photo frames from scap plastic spoons and Tinted sheet
  3. Short film screening

Sharing and caring:
The idea of getting together and having fun is most important here.

In the words of the Shri. Sunil Shinde, the teacher and care taker of the students; this is the day the kids look forward for the entire year.

The kids enjoy the day most, as they see the world outside very rarely and that’s the reason they enjoy it the most.

  1. Their aspirations and interests are shaped in such sessions.
  2. The success of the day lies in the idea that the kids forget their day to day battles and enjoy the camaraderie with the architecture students.

The event was attended by 10 students of first and third year Architecture.

It was well received by the kids from Ashram.

Take Aways:

  1. Sharing our abundance gives immense joy.
  2. A small change ie days joy makes a large difference to these kids.
