The students of final year B.Sc CMS and EMS got the opportunity to participate in a Community Development Program organised by the Department of Statistics and Analytics as a part of our curriculum to, Bosco Vatsalya Bhavan. As the privileged group of the society we often ignore the other side of the fence. We forget to think about the life of those who do not have what we take for granted. Being a part of this program gave us a glimpse the world of underprivileged children. We contributed a little from the education we get by teaching them subjects like English, Mathematics and General Knowledge. We also spoke to them about various topics related to physical and mental health. We played a few videos in order to help them understand the topics better. It was a blessing for us and hopefully for them too.
More events to come……Stay tuned!
