“A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.” This reminds us of our social responsibility. Thrithwa ashram is a home for destitute women run by Sr. Miriyamma. The inmates of Thritwa ashram are women who are differently challenged and are on daily medications. These women are brought from streets, railway stations and some rehabilitation. All these women live like a family, and the sisters take good care of each one of them like their own. The BBA BA students’ visit to the ashram was an unforgettable lesson. There the students learnt more about true life and sharing and caring. There were around 45-50 inmates in the home. They were all middle aged women and above. Their physical condition was quite good. There are many recreational facilities available to them and these facilities were properly used by them. However, all of them were lonely and craving for love and affection. The students spoke to them, shared their love and sang songs for them along with dance. The care shown to them by the sisters was indeed inspiring.

“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
Home of Faith Charitable trust is a place for the orphan children. Not only are they deprived of the simple comforts of life, but even basic amenities and essentials like clothes, food and healthcare. Some of the children are very talented and we need to encourage it. They need our empathy more than one sympathy. They need action and also require help from people like us. It has been 13 years since the institution has been carrying out this great responsibility. The trust had children of different age groups generally from 8 years to 18 years. They were very excited when the students walked in at first. It wasn’t so easy to get them to interact with all of them. They engaged the children in activities such as singing songs, making them show their unique talents such as beatboxing, playing games like musical chair and even danced with them. The children were very happy to pose for a picture with the students. The students donated certain commodities such as burgers, chocolate pies, and notebooks. Seeing the children with sporadic resources made them realise to appreciate the copious amounts of things they had sometimes take for granted. This small social outreach programme was of great meaning to all the students. Overall, it was a memorable day to count.

“SUICIDE DOES NOT KILL A PERSON BUT SADNESS DOES”
ROH was found in the year 2012 by likeminded and dedicated couple MR.GRACIA ALEXANDER and MRS. ANNAM ALEXANDER in Bangalore rural area in the state of Karnataka. The forgone love and rights from young age led to a strong vision that the left out or orphan should be given love in all forms and opportunities to life and every reason to live in this world and this becomes the only sole reason for the formation of ROH. ROH takes care of destitute, orphaned and abandoned children. They provide a nutritional diet to all children to help eradicate malnutrition and encourage healthy body and mind growth. They also provide a child friendly living atmosphere for the children. As a part of the social outreach programme (SOP), organised by the department of management, the students of III BBA ‘B' visited this orphanage ‘Rays of hope" at Kannur. The first thing that caught the students eyes was the quote at the door “suicide does not kill a person but sadness does". Looking at the delighted and innocent smile of the children, the students realised, there is so much more to life than what is being taught in the class. They sang, laughed, danced and enjoyed with the little kids as if they were kids too. They created beautiful memories in the 2 hrs given and promised to cherish this experience forever.
