On December 14th, Parivartan, the Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) club of Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur, in association with Gram Panchayat of Vidhani, organized an Education and Employment Consulting Workshop for students studying in standard VIII and above. This free workshop was held at the Government Secondary School Vimalpura, village Vidhani, and it’s aimed to educate students in rural areas about employment opportunities and making the right choices when it comes to a career path.
The one-day workshop was inaugurated by Dr. Prabhat Pankaj, Director, Jaipuria Jaipur and coordinated by Dr. S. K. Pandey, Dr. Shubha Johri, Dr. Vikas Indoria, Mr. A. K. Tiwari, and Mr. Prakash Sharma. The CSR club student members were in full attendance, participating with their usual interest and enthusiasm. And, they were instrumental in the coordination of the workshop and its activities.
The event began with Jaipuria students extending a warm and traditional welcome to the school children, Pradhan, Gram Panchayat and other family members from the village. They were then told about the aim and vision of the workshop, which was, in the end, a resounding success. Rohit, a student member shared his thoughts: “It was an interesting experience that helped me understand the optimization of resources. We got along famously with the children and the interactions were wholesome and fruitful. The children expressed an overwhelmingly positive response to this initiative.”
Talking about the initiative, Bharti said, “I clearly understood the concepts of identifying gaps and finding solutions through this CSR initiative. Jaipuria Institute of Management is providing free education to children in the village who have great talent but lack awareness due to their low levels of communication skillsand limited access to technology.” Looking at the potential of students, the Institute hasplanned a full course on computer efficiency and communication. The classes will commence soon, with the students of the Jaipuria family having the opportunity to travel to the villages and educate the students about the emerging fields of study and career opportunities.
