SNEHARAGAM


Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. When it comes to changing lives, a small gesture goes a long way. It is with this intention, that the students of NIT Calicut pursue our own social initiative programme – Sneharagam, right in our own backyard, with only one goal in mind – to change lives. As part of this venture, we reach out to several orphanages and special schools in and around Calicut, and invite the children to participate in a wide variety of cultural events ranging from songs, dance, skits, mimicry, and so much more. Essentially, we provide them with a platform to showcase their talents, and to discover new ones.

At Sneharagam, every child is a winner, and when they leave for their homes at the end of the day, we make sure that they leave smiling, with wonderful memories to cherish for a lifetime. In addition to the cultural programme, we also organize field trips, orphanage visits, and other fun activities for the children. Fundraisers, book-donation drives, toy-donation drives are coordinated by the Sneharagam team every year. In the past, we’ve had several dignitaries gracing this heart-warming event with their presence, including the Kozhikode District Collector - Sri N Prasanth (in 2016) and the actor Jagadish (in 2015). Every year, we kick-start Ragam with our social programme aiming to give back to our community and this year Sneharagam is scheduled to take place on 13th March, 2017 at NIT Calicut. NIT Calicut invites you to join us in this venture and help brighten up these lovely lives.
