Amritsar, November 18

Young management students of the Indian Institute of Management, Amritsar, are making sure to serve their bit to society through Sankalp, a CSR club of the institute.

The group of 56 students is creating awareness on social issues, holding activities and involving others students for the same. Students are also addressing issues such as drug menace, water conservation, and environment and plantation drive among others. Soon, they will coach school students for various competitive exams under their school programme.

Until last year, the institution was working with a Manawala-based school. Students there managed to crack competitive examinations with help from the club. Manoj, senior coordinator of the club, said: “The idea behind the formation of the club is to help young graduates understand social issues.” “We are going to begin the school programme in the month of December. School students will be taught by members of the club,” added Manoj. — TNS
