Samarthan is a student initiative under the recently established 'Centre for Social Sensitivity and Action'. Our goal is to promote the culture of being socially responsible among budding managers and stress on the importance of giving back to society. Apart from managing and coordinating the institute's CSR program (GiveGoa Initiative) along with the faculty coordination team, we also organize events to promote the spirit of community & social well-being.
Samarthan is a platform where GIM students strive to bridge the gap between ideas and actions and thus contribute towards societal betterment. Towards achieving its goal, Samarthan has been organizing social events for various purposes such as Woman Empowerment, Health and Hygiene and Career opportunities for school students. We have also been involved in community connect events and have organized discussions towards engaging youth in finding sustainable solutions to social problems such as solid waste management. On the national and international platform, we have been and are working for the Sustainable Leadership Summit and the United Nations Principles for Responsible Management Education.
Through our work, we ultimately strive to reinforce GIM's educational philosophy of producing individuals that are ethical, socially responsible and humane; who therefore embrace diversity and are good citizens, sensitive to all concerns of society.
