SOCIAL AWARENESS PROGRAMME (SAP)

SOCIAL AWARENESS PROGRAMME (SAP)
II Semester MBA- 2007 – 2009 Batch

Most students who join the top Indian business schools come from middle class families. They have practically no exposure to rural India and its problems of poverty, lack of infrastructure, gender inequality and disempowerment of the landless. Nor are they aware of the problems of the urban poor. Sadly, the business schools they study in provide little input about these issues. When these managers join the work force, their sole aim seems to be professional progress and financial benefits for themselves and their employers. Nobody has the time for the real problems of India. The rat race is becoming more pronounced in an economy that has become more liberalized in the past 15 years. We, at MACFAST, have taken various initiatives like SALT to address this issue. We believe that India cannot become a developed country unless its poor also develop and share the benefits of a rapidly developing economy. MACFAST MBA students should show the path for others to follow.
MACFAST believes that students need to learn leadership skills. They need to learn leadership skills in college, so that they can help their communities. So, MACFAST is coming out with a new initiative called SAP (Social Awareness Program) aimed at sensitizing the students about the social and community requirements. With this in mind the following program is chalked out.

Objectives of the Program

To make the students
1. Aware of the community needs.
2. Develop an empathetic feeling about the weaker sections of the society.
3. Gain maturity.
4. Have a high level of character formation.
5. Committed to social work values and ethics; to the principles of social and economic justice; and to serving all people regardless of age, class, color, culture, disability, family structure, gender, marital status, national origin, race, religion, sex.


Methodology

119 students of the II semester MBA will be divided into 58 groups of two and 1 group of three. The groups will be formed on the basis of the location of their residences.
Each group will visit atleast one charitable organization and interact with the management and the inmates and interview them with a structured questionnaire schedule (list of organizations and the questionnaire are given separately).
Each group will prepare a report based on the field survey and present the report in front of the audience consisting of the Principal, Director, H.O.D, faculty members and fellow students. During the presentation students will also focus on the learning experience from the whole activity.

Organizations

Each group can select the organizations from the following category.
1. Orphanages
2. Poor homes
3. Old-age homes
4. Rehabilitation centers for mentally and physically challenged people
5. De-addiction centers
6. AIDS rehabilitation centers
7. Leprosy/T.B sanatoriums.
8. Homes for the destitute.
9. Any similar organization.
