IIT INDORE had started its Social Outreach Program in 2011 with the constitution of a social organization called "AVANA" constituted by a group of socially conscious faculty members and students. The group has so far reached out to a neighboring school and extended their support to the school in various forms including teaching students about cleanliness and hygiene. Activities of AVANA are linked below.
Today IIT Indore enters another domain of getting directly involved with the society in terms of spreading the sense of cleanliness and hygiene starting with its immediate vicinity at the small village of SIMROL. It has adopted the local Government School which parents students from primary to higher secondary levels.
With the launch of "SWACHCHA BHARAT ABHIYAN" in coordiantion with the Central Government, IIT INDORE has started its contribution by providing hands, concepts and cleanliness related materials to the Government School SIMROL on 2nd October 2014.
