JALANDHAR,JANUARY112018 ( By SK.Vyas) Kanya Maha Vidyalaya – the Heritage and Autonomous Institution, Jalandhar has been forefront of owning its social responsibility. In this regard the college has been actively involved in various social outreach activities like adoption of schools, literacy drive programs, running free vocational training courses for the girls of economically weaker sections of the society. Carrying forward this mission the college had started the Empathy corner outside the college gate.
The main motive was to inculcate the sentiments of empathy towards the under privileged among the students through donation of clothes, shoes, utensils, toys etc. Following the Indian tradition of ‘Gupt Daan Maha Daan’ the students don’t get to know who are the beneficiaries of the things donated by them taking away any sentiment of pride in them. The corner has successfully completed two year of its existence. All the departments, faculty and students have worked enthusiastically to make it a success. Each department of the college with their student volunteers to take turns to run the corner. This initiative of the college has been appreciated by the residents of the area. The labor, rickshaw pullers and other needy people flock to the empathy corner every day. Principal Prof.(Dr.) Atima Sharma Dwivedi lauded the co-coordinator social extension Dr. Monica Sharma for this philanthropist initiative. The vision of K.M.V. is value-based nurturing of the students and activities of this nature play a pivotal role in evolving the students personality and making them valuable citizens by dint of their ethical behavior.
