Joy of Giving

India’s biggest philanthropic festival Daan Utsav, also known as Joy of Giving, is a week-long event where many individuals step forward to help the needy by ‘Acts of Giving’ – noble acts that will remain cherished in the hearts of all. This festival of philanthropy, celebrated across the country since its launch in 2009, inculcates happiness and kindness among mankind through simple deeds. A giving event could be as simple as a family taking out their maid’s children for an ice-cream party, or as large as a ‘Gift Compassion’. 

Kartavya –CSR club of IIM Raipur didn’t stay back. Two events- Career counselling for government school kids and donate a dabeli were conducted during this week. It was immense pleasure sharing a part of your joy with others.  It gave a sense of solace and satisfaction to everyone participated.

Teach- Career counselling to school children

Choosing a career is not a serious affair until 12th grade. However, once  done with 12th, it is necessary to choose a definite career and decide a career goal. Choosing the right career option keeping the market in mind is necessary. In addition to this, selecting the right education institution is equally important. Unfortunately, not many students are able to discover their potentials and interests at the stage and this is when pressure starts building.

Keeping this in mind Kartavya decided to help students of government schools because of the fact that teachers aren't able to focus more attention on individual students. Students of IIM Raipur from various educational backgrounds volunteered to speak about their stream and share the various options available, the various best colleges that could be approached and affordable by the students.

At the end of the session’s students felt happy as this counselling had helped them in several ways. At a young age, students are naturally interested in a number of disciplines. Their minds are too immature to determine what discipline they will prefer from others. This session helped students to have a serious glance over their future and let them understand their preferences. It also helped the students in co-relating between their current studies and the careers they have planned for their future. Through the results of career counselling,teachers also understood the interests of the students and direct them in their studies and customize them to suit the talents. In all the session effectively helped students to identify and pursue careers which they find suited to their talents and interests.

Donate a Dabeli
Around the world, 842 million people do not have enough of the food they need to live an active, healthy life. People suffering from chronic hunger are plagued with recurring illness, developmental disabilities and low productivity. They are often forced to use all their limited physical and financial resources just to put food on the table.

The largest area of concern is childhood hunger. Feeding children today is feeding our future and creating a better place for everyone. Everyone deserves to enjoy full nutritious meals with their families. Focussing this Kartavya club decide to donate a dabeli to the people of slum area.  The project appealed to the students of IIM Raipur to contribute their bit in making this mission a successfully one. Students willingly made contributions and from the same donations the required ingredients were bought to prepare the dabeli. The best part of the event was that the students themselves prepared the dabeli in the kitchens of IIM Raipur and distributed them. Many students volunteered to make this event a grand success, the result of which was feeding a day’s meal to the person in need.


Thus in the entire week it was realised to Wrap a box of kindness and help an old man smile. Share a piece of love and let a child jump with joy. Believed change begins with us. The Joy of Giving week is a platform for all of us to contribute to a cause and to make a difference in society! Let’s pledge to step out, find opportunities to give to a cause and return with lasting pride. Happiness is, after all, an act of giving!
