Social Responsibility is one of the key pillars of IIMU. And our Director Prof. Janat Shah’s persistent efforts lie in awareness of the budding managers of IIMU towards the critical issues in society. Prayatna appends his vision of developing a sensitized student force by giving them ample opportunities to serve the under-privileged. The camp proved to be one of the initiatives where the students spent a day well, spreading moments of happiness and joy sharing lunch with the people and got a chance to do a significant value addition to the society by creating awareness among the differently abled people about the opportunities ahead and a new life with Jaipur Foot.
