Umang is an initiative by the social wing of the Social, Entrepreneurship and Consulting Cell (SECC) of SIBM Pune. It is an event that is organized annually with a noble thought of making Christmas merrier for everyone where in, the students of Symbiosis Institute of Business Management, Pune celebrate Christmas Day with the underprivileged.
This year SECC celebrated Christmas with their special friends from ‘Saraswati Anath Shikshan Aashram’ and ‘Chhatrapati Pratishthan’s residential school for mentally challenged children’ as a part of its event Umang 2016.
On 25th December 2016, student volunteers from SIBM Pune along with members of SECC visited these NGOs and conducted a variety of cultural activities in an endeavor to truly spread some warmth this Christmas. These little acts of kindness made a great impact on the little souls at these NGOs. The conclusion to this memorable day was made even sweeter by the cutting of a cake, which was shared and relished among all the participants of Umang 2016.
‘The heart that gives, gathers’ is an apt description for this particular event, as the experience gained will forever be cherished not only by the children but also by the students who were an integral part of this initiative.
