“Jyotika”, a student and Goodwill Foundation initiative, endeavors to bring light in the lives of visually impaired girls. Department of Management Studies, IIT Madras, organized a Jyotika Event during Samanvay ’08 to create awareness among students. The program started with a very touching video manifesting the lives of visually impaired. Shivani, the coordinator from DoMS, then welcomed the participants (visually impaired students) from Goodwill Foundation.
Goodwill Foundation works towards the welfare of visually impaired women and trains them in Carnatic music, Computers, Handicrafts etc. The participants from Goodwill Foundation then won the hearts of audience with their songs. The audience present in house packed MRC were so moved, they even started clapping to the tune of the songs. In the end Prof. L.S. Ganesh handed over the contribution money to the foundation as a token of appreciation. Prof. Ganesh expressed deep satisfaction over the student’s initiative and stressed on the fact that more such social initiative should be taken by students in MBA institutes all over the country.
