Every year Vikasana, the social initiatives club of IIM Bangalore, invites students from Spastics Society of Karnataka to spend a day with us on campus. The Spastics Society of Karnataka is a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) dedicated to the welfare of people with neuro-muscular and developmental Disabilities. The Society provides a comprehensive package of diagnostic and intervention services to people with cerebral palsy, autism, mental retardation, multiple disabilities and learning disabilities.
This year too we had 30 students visiting our campus. Students of IIMB enthusiastically took part in the interaction. Through this program, the students of IIMB get an opportunity to interact and understand the issues faced by the students from the Spastic Society. The students from the Spastic Society in turn get to spend a fun filled day at the beautiful IIMB campus leaving everyone happy and content at the end of a day well spent. Games like musical chair, cricket, pass a ball were organised and few motivational videos were played for them. During the course of the day, the volunteers had formed close bonding with the children and when it was time for the children to go back, there was a silent tear in the eyes of many!
