As part of the induction program for MBA 17-19, the students of DCSMAT, Trivandrum were taken to a Non Profit Organization- Mitraniketan “The Home of Friends” . Mitraniketan was founded by Padmashri K. Viswanathan in 1956.
The objective of the visit was to provide a deeper insight into the functional aspect of an NGO and how they deal in empowering the socially backward classes.
The organisation works in the fields of innovation, training and extension in community development, environment, science, education and appropriate technology. They offer various educational and training programs in a holistic spirit to primarily socially underprivileged children and youngsters. The organization focuses on alternative education mode for development.
Our students got an opportunity to interact with the Joint Director, Dr. Reghu Ramdas followed by visit to various small scale units under the guidance of Program Assistant Mrs. Sumam. The students also visited Krishi Vigyan Kendra hosted by Mitraniketan and were able to understand the new technologies available in the field of agriculture.
