Be a Reason for Someone’s Smile

Social Outreach Unit with the tagline “Be a Reason for Someone’s Smile” helps in creating an environment conducive for development by identifying the problems and helping the society deal with it. It is a unit working to reach the unreached stratum of the society and to touch the untouched subjects.

 

 This committee is the brainchild of our beloved principal Dr.  Anju Kapoor. We have conducted events that have brought a smile on the faces of children and also taught all of us how to find our true purpose in life. We believe in the holistic development of individuals. Saying one kind word and doing one kind action can truly make a great difference in someone’s life! You never know what you might have said that must have not mattered so much to you, but for the opposite person, it must have meant the world, so be kind and spread love

Clothes Donation Drive

The Social Outreach Unit of Usha Pravin Gandhi College of Arts, Commerce and Science conducted a clothes donation drive from the 17th to the 19th of December, 2019. Boxes were put up so that everyone could anonymously put in the clothes voluntarily. All the clothes that were collected including warm clothes were donated to the Poddar Foundation for the noble cause of donating them to the Uttarakhand Flood Victims. Thus, the committee supported this great cause, remembering the importance of humanity. It was a small effort by the committee to help the victims because we believe that helping one person might not change the whole but it could change the whole world for that one person. We were really ecstatic on seeing the smiles on their faces after everything that they had been through. Truly, a smile is a curve that sets everything straight.
