IEM E-Cell conducts several charity drives throughout the year that are aimed to better the quality of life of several penurious and underprivileged, living in slums across the city of Kolkata. These charity drives are primarily focussed on education and learning, so that children from impoverished families can learn to read and write and craft a better future for themselves as well as their families.
On the second charity drive, the group of IEM E-Cell members visited the slums adjoining the Rashbehari, and distributed clothes, food packets and stationery articles to about 100 wistful children.
This group conducted classes on primary subjects like English and Mathematics, as well as teach them Arts & Crafts in order to capture their interest, so that more children follow their peers and come to study.
In the end, they explained the advantages of a school education and requested all children to go to school on a regular basis.
