Lucknow: The management students of Jaipuria Institute Lucknow on Sunday continued phase one of the social outreach programme with an aim to help the school dropouts and unprivileged students continue with their online education.

Jaipuria Institute of Management's Social Outreach Programme

54 teams of Jaipuria students spread across the city in various residential areas, markets, and metro stations appealing to the people to donate used phones, tablets, and laptops to support the cause. These donated digital devices would then be refurbished by Jaipuria institute and will be distributed to the unprivileged students of government schools with the help of the Department of Basic Education and NGOs.

"This initiative is a ray of hope to bring back those children to the education mainstream, who unfortunately had to dropout from schools due to pandemic and lack of access to digital devices necessary for attending online classes. This is for a noble cause and I appeal to everyone to support the cause", said Professor Reena Agrawal, Chairperson, Social Responsibility Committee at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow.

The increasing awareness, interest, and significant contribution of the people of the city towards this campaign are motivating us and giving us the strength to keep ongoing. I am proud to be a part of this noble cause and I am extremely happy that our efforts will bring the dropout children back to the mainstream of education", said Safwan Ahmed, student, Jaipuria Institute of Management.

Vishal Singh, a student and one of the contributors of the campaign said, "The young blood can shape a better India.I am happy to see that my fellow students understand the importance of initiative and are trying their best to make it a success".

"We are collecting the proof of identity of the donors of digital devices to uniquely identify them. In return, we are providing a receipt to them as proof", said Mr. Omesh Srivastava, one of the volunteers.

After a good response on December 02 and 05, the students will continue the campaign on 7th December as well.

After the completion of the third day of the outreach programme, the digital devices collected by the students will be refurbished by the Jaipuria Institute of Management. These refurbished devices will then be distributed among the dropouts and students of government schools with the help of the Basic Education Department, govt. of Uttar Pradesh; and other non-government organizations.
