Community Service Day 2019

Mahatma Education Society’s Pillai Group of Institutions observed Community Service Day on 2nd February 2019 by inviting over 800 residents from various orphanages, destitute homes, old age homes and shelters for tribal and street children to their sprawling Panvel Campus where they were treated to a memorable day of food, fun and learning. The staff and students of the Pillai group curated many fun activities, competitions and games and it was heartening to see the guests enthusiastically participate in all of them. Each guest was given specially designed towels and blankets as gifts. Mahatma Education Society continues to associate with these organizations and nurture them at an institutional level year after year to improve their quality of life. This unique and innovative community service program provides staff and students an opportunity to serve the underprivileged in society and sensitize them to the various problems faced by them.

Inaugurating the day, Chief Guest Ms. Maitreyi Nigwekar, Founder of Adveka Foundation, an organisation that focussed on caring for the caregivers of chronic illnesses, commended the Pillai Group for their role in shaping young minds towards community service. Speaking about her Foundation, she reinforced the importance of mental health to be more fulfilled and create a happy universe.

In her inaugural welcome address, Dr. Daphne Pillai, Chairperson of Mahatma Education Society, mentioned that one of the key goals of Mahatma Education Society is to expand its community service activities on a massive scale to help reach out to many disadvantaged members of society and inculcate a sense of pride among students and faculty members in serving the less fortunate in society. This program is the brainchild of Mr. Franav Pillai, Deputy CEO of the Pillai group of institutions who is passionate about community service and has created this unique initiative to foster a spirit of giving among students and also helps develop their overall personality.
