Community outreach programs are inspired by the “come to learn, go to serve” philosophy. They help in the holistic development of students. Students take great pride in reaching out and providing benefit to local residents and slum dwellers through various volunteering services such as: supportive counselling, vocational assistance, health & hygiene and wellness programs.
Much of this community outreach happens through-
- AU as the home of Koshish KKDK
- AU as a YES Center
AU as the home of Koshish KKDK
Koshish KKDK (Koshish Kuch Kar Dikhane Ki) is a voluntary student group for overall social development. A large number of students are members of “Koshish”. The resident students have a big role in the organization and activities of the group. The four main objectives of the group are
- Primary Education & Health Care for Underprivileged Children
- Taking Action for Environment Protection through Eco-drives
- Personality Development/ Mentoring of the Student Members
- General Awareness
To fulfill these objectives Koshish Kuch Kar Dikhane Ki (KKDK) organizes performances, exhibitions and donation campaigns from time to time in the University’s premises.
The motto of Koshish KKDK is “Serve humanity and boost your dignity.” A teaching site for underprivileged students has also been established at the campus. Through its multifarious activities, Koshish KKDK intends to sensitize the larger AU community towards the tremendous potential for creativity and development existing among all children, no matter where they come from provided they are guided on the right path. At another level, the group makes a meagre attempt to integrate the disadvantaged children of India into the “mainstream”. The group is well connected interpersonally and has a Facebook group as well.
