Social Face of JECRC
At JECRC Foundation, we believe the growth of the nation is deeply imbibed in growth of all sections of the society. It is the youth of the nation which forms the most important pillar of any society. For the growth of the society, it is the moral duty of every student to gather wisdom and knowledge and pass it on to the less privileged members of society. These groups actively involve more than a 1000 students of JECRC and have revolutionized their perspective towards the most fundamental issue facing this country’s society. These groups cater to the needs of the less fortunate sections of the society by providing them with free education, medical care, stationery and other resources. Over the last 8 years, these groups have touched the lives of more than 25000 persons in need, be it the kids of slum dwellers or senior citizens of old age homes or blood donation for patients or cleanliness & sanitation training for villagers. These kids are also aggressively spreading the importance of protecting the female child in our society. In this quest we are honored to have the leadership of Nobel Laureate Mr. Kailash Satyarthi with us. His continued guidance to our attempts, both in person and in thoughts, is a source of great inspiration.

Since its formation, the group is working actively and dedicatedly for the cause “BETI BACHAO, BETI PADHAO.” To bring a change in the society for girls, Suhasini works in various domains and does survey and elimination of problems at villages through regular monitoring. The members make door-to-door visits to know the basic roots of the problem, in which sex ratio, information of school going children and their ratio, etc. are collected. Then a proper plan is devised for tackling the problem. This includes helping families complete their documentation, getting children admitted to schools and helping them develop various other skills. The team visits localities and schools of these areas on a daily basis.

From planting hundreds of saplings in and out of the campus to cleanliness drives, from visiting orphanages to organizing incredible utility donation camps, this quintessential enterprise has done it all.
