Social Responsive Cell
Solutions to large global challenges often start with small actions at the local level. Whenever you see a need or a problem in your community, you can make a difference by standing up and taking action.
For example, an artist may see young people in his neighborhood with nothing to do after school and start an informal art program. A nurse may see that women in her community lack information about basic health services and organize informational workshops.
Being educators we saw young people from poor families, from remote village areas, who attend school regularly but don’t have proper aids to enhance their computer knowledge and we thought of setting up a tutoring program for them on frequent basis.
We found ourselves moved to take action — no matter the challenge or opportunity we choose to address — we will be able to do more when we have more resources and involve more people. That is why we decided to start a nongovernmental organization (NGO) of our college- “Young Minds”.
A National Level Technical Fest “Entréza” is conducted by Sunrise Group of Institutions every year in the month of April. This technical fest aims to provide hurl for the student to exhibit their technical expertise and also to upgrade their knowledge and to enhance a good relationship between the students.
It’s the perfect opportunity for all talented students from colleges and institutions under the SGI banner to participate in the competitions and showcase their creative talent in the three day mega fest. This year, among the various competitions on the inaugural day of the event on Wednesday, 10th April ’13, SGI activated their Social Responsive Cell (SRC) team, naming it as “Young Minds”. It is a registered Non-governmental organization (NGO), under Rajasthan Society Act, 1958, run by SGI students and faculty members for the upliftment of young peoples in underdeveloped sections of the society through meaningful computer education.
