Joy of Giving Week

The Social Responsibility Cell (SRC) of Xavier Institute of Management, Bhubaneswar celebrated the Joy of giving week from 26th September to 2nd October 2010. Joy of giving week is a national movement aiming to engage every Indian in practicing “giving back” to the society, in a way he or she chooses. It has been started with the hope that it continues to grow to become a “festival of sharing” that unites all Indians. As a part of this initiative, XIMB joined hands with Goonj’s Collection drive and Bakul Foundation and launched the program "VASTRA-SAMMAN" in the campus to collect old clothes and other reusable materials. The clothes collected will be donated to the “Clothes for Work” program for the people in the rural areas. Collection boxes were put in front of prominent places around the campus like main gate, GR1, GR2, RMH, MTR and Studio Apartments. A "Door to door collection" drive was also launched as a part of this. The response from the faculty and students towards the program was overwhelming with thousands of materials collected which inclues clothes, stationary, newspapers etc. Overall, the program was a huge success.
