A Social Initiative Committee
Bhavishya is the social initiative committee of IIM Lucknow run by a group of motivated students determined to make a difference to the world. We believe that action at the grass roots level by students such as us can bring about powerful change. Therefore, our aim is twofold:
Active in the domains of education, health, and women empowerment, we leverage the technical and managerial competency of students and the faculty to help the underprivileged. In the past there have been more than 6000 beneficiaries of the Bhavishya activities. Bhavishya conducts a variety of events and programs throughout the academic calendar. The events are so designed as to involve the entire student community and faculty in addressing the social causes. Flagship events like Paarijat, Disha, Evening School, Harmony Cup, Adult Literacy Campaign, Medical Camps and Community Visits have gained immense popularity over the years with extensive participation and allowed us to extend our support in various parts of the society in Lucknow. Besides these, events that are offshoots of the core programs are also conducted that promulgate the original cause to other campuses, thereby increasing in scale and scope.
Disha is a Career Guidance Program for Pre-University Students of Government schools.
Currently we are associated with PBVM School, Gomti Nagar where sessions are conducted on Personality Development, Communication, Team Building, Competitive Exam Preparations & Computer Learning.
Bhavishya has tied up with an associate college, Jaipuria Institute ofManagement, to manage weekly activities. Students of IIML and JIM volunteer to take morning classes of these kids every week, where they focus more on strengthening the basic concepts of Mathematics, Science and English along with General Knowledge & General Awareness sessions.
We also conduct counselling sessions for these kids. These are group sessions as well as one-on-one sessions. This provides a platform where students can openly discuss about their hobbies and interests with the councilors and understand what all opportunities exist for them in future.
In addition to the regular weekly classes, annual workshops are organized every year. These workshops are organized each in IIML and JIM campuses. The workshops indulge students in various personality development activities. The motive behind conducting such workshops is to give these students an exposure of outside environment and the atmosphere of recognized universities and to motivate them for higher studies and a better future.
