Exposing the younger minds towards a broader spectrum.

Encouraging them to think bold and broad.

Inculcate caring attitude among the students.


Children matter- both as individuals as well as future citizens of the country. The most important thing that matters most about them is their subjective well-being- both mental and  physical. Shrinking exposure to nature, excessive academic pressure and increased screen time contribute towards decline in a child’s mental well-being. Hence nurturing students for their overall development should be a fundamental part of the teaching process.

Not only the children but differently abled children and elderly people also need an extra bit of care so as to be nurtured in a proper manner. The college thus tried to inculcate this caring attitude amongst students by encouraging them to help these sections of the society as much as possible. Giving moral support showing heartfelt humility and respect makes them aware that someone really does care about them,
