National Service Scheme, IIT Bhilai

Who are we?

We represent the IIT Bhilai chapter of NSS.

"The Human race has always progressed by harnessing a delicate synergy between an individual and his community."

It is the society which shapes a person into a responsible citizen, and these individuals in turn form a progressive society. Hence, we believe that the act of “Giving Back” should take a paramount spot in one’s philosophy. Through various events and projects, we aim to encourage the students to work towards things that matter to the community in and around the IIT Bhilai fraternity.

What Do We Do?

Since, 2016 we have come a long way from being a nascent group of enthusiastic students to a dedicated body striving towards community welfare. We have gradually progressed from nebulous ideas to having concrete roadmaps towards effective community service. Some areas in which we currently volunteer inculde healthcare, teaching, social cognizance and environmental awareness. We have also joined hands with several NGOs in and around Raipur and are working actively with them. NSS IIT Bhilai functions as a dynamic body embracing innovations and ideas from all which can bolster our efforts towards social service. Here is an overview of our areas of involvement.

Teaching Cell

The teaching cell of NSS IIT Bhilai believes that educating each and every individual is our road map to building a prosperous and better tomorrow. Since we are the nation’s torchbearers, it is up to us to raise awareness about the importance of education. We frequently organize visits to local schools and colleges to teach, inspire and shape the young minds of our country.

Blood Donation

We at NSS IIT Bhilai aim at creating a healthy society. Blood donation camps are frequently organized inside IIT Bhilai campus to help each individual to be a part of something greater than themselves by helping someone in need and giving them the satisfaction of touching another life.

Swachh Bharat

Working collectively as well raising awareness about marching towards a cleaner and better India is one of the foundation stones of NSS IIT Bhilai. We actively organize cleanliness drives, raise social awareness through nukkad nataks (street plays) and organize student debates to discuss and educate each and every individual to come forward and play their part.

Collaborations

NSS IIT Bhilai holds the belief that even an iota of thought spent towards community service gives rise to small but necessary deeds. These small steps then pave way towards making a significant impact. Hence, we are open for collaborations with all agencies - individuals as well as organizations. Every year, we undertake volunteer service with The Akshaya Patra Foundation. We also have a collaboration with the NGO Goonj. We conduct cleanliness drives aligning ourselves with the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Safety camps are held in partnership with the local fire department. Seminars and wokshops on life-saving skills (CPR, First Aid) are conducted under the guidance of local hospitals. Hence, we strive towards promulgating effective community service through all-encompassing projects and partnership.
