Social Works League

This year the League started its service to the community with the most essential activity for the students by focussing on providing sanitary napkins to the students in need. With the extensive number of departments and students it almost seemed impossible but the league girls put in their hands together and distributed them to few departments of Aided and Self Supporting stream. The League, together with Swachh Ethiraj League organized an enlightening session on "Adolescent Health Care". Dr. R.V. Dakshayani, Senior Assistant Professor of Paediatrics, ICH, gave the students an insight into the common ailments that adolescents face.

The Social Works League of Ethi Shakthi, also visited the Institute of Child Health and Hospital for Children, cancer affected children's ward. The league students as a group interacted and entertained those children with heart touching songs, rhymes, storytelling sessions and the children listened very happily. The small gifts given lovingly by the girls brought in a sparkle of joy in those kids' face which brought sparkle of tears in the students' eyes.

The Social Works League and Swachh Ethiraj League along with Cleanliness Committee organised an awareness programme on the topic “Walk for Plastics” on 6thFeburary 2020 in the Mini Auditorium.
