EXTENSION ACTIVITY – OUTREACH PROGRAM: 9 FEBRUARY 2022 - DEPARTMENT OF HUMANITIES

The Department of Humanities as a part of extension activity, visited an NGO at Deepahalli named REDS which stands for Ragpickers Education and Development Scheme. REDS (Ragpickers Education & Development Scheme) is to empower uneducated and waste- picking children from the streets of Bangalore and Ranchi. REDS was initiated by an Inter- religious Dialogue Group. REDS established as an organization with support of Bangalore Multi-purpose Social Society Service (BMSSS). Later, Marianist Trust, a registered charitable trust took over REDS from BMSSS.

The main aim of the visit is to mainly educate the students and the children at the NGO about the adoption of good norms for a good citizenship and to inculcate into the people’s mind ideals of unity. As part of extension activity, the students from final year BA were a part of it.

Students gained a lot of exposure at the NGO and were involved with the children for various indoor activities. The final year students were allowed to visit the NGO for training the children at the NGO in various educational based assignments which will boost the knowledge to an extent. They were allowed to visit the NGO for field work for the children in teaching them basics in English and Mathematics. As part of the training, they were given certificates to encourage them to undertake such projects in the future.
