Group for Rural Activities is a voluntary student group of IIT Bombay which aims at providing an exposure to our rural India to the diverse IITB community. Our Major Activities includes:
We have been visiting number of pioneers of grass level development across India to learn and understand about villegers and NGOs and their works. Duration of the camp is about 4-5 days.
Previous trips include Jhabua (Madhya Pradesh), Jalgaon, Palghar, Ahmednagar, Ranshet (Maharashtra), Arunachal pradesh, Mysuru (Karnataka), etc.
The initiative involves collection of disposed bicycles by pass-out junta and distribute it among the needy children in rural and tribal areas.
When leaders speak, they Inspire.
We conduct talks by prominent Social Workers to inspire the people to know and work to solve the problems faced by the rural India.
This program provides learning platform for underprivilaged students from Phule Nagar (Slum area near IIT Bombay)
