Inculcating Human Values For Social Well-Being
To meet the objective of instilling commitment to social causes, the college has formally integrated all related activities under the aegis of BCM-OJASS, a registered society. OJASS is the college’s endeavor to systematically organize all socially relevant activities in the college. Students and staff voluntarily contribute to OJASS. Financial assistance is provided to the staff to meet the medical expenses and to students in the form of tuition fees, examination fees and other payments under the ‘Education Revolving Finance Scheme’ of BCM-OJASS.
Under the banner, ‘BCM Snehaveedu’, five houses were constructed. Of the beneficiaries, four were students of the college. Over twenty lakhs has been raised towards ‘BCM Snehaveedu’.
OJASS carries out an outreach programme in Pongampally, a tribal hamlet in Kanthalloor Panchayat in Idukki for over ten years. As part of mainstreaming the disadvantaged section of the society, college organizes various awareness programs, focusing on educating the children of the community. The students organize ‘Dostana’, summer camp, where training and interactive sessions are held on socially relevant topics. School stationery is distributed among the children in Pongampally. The students have set up a makeshift library and have arranged tuition facilities for students of the village. These activities have considerably improved the academic performance of students.
The students conduct ‘Samanwaya’, a cultural fest as part of bringing forth children who need special care and protection from various children’s homes and juvenile homes through special training. Cultural events such as ‘Viomithram’ and ‘Saphalam Sahyanam’ are organized which inculcate moral values, leading to dissemination of cultural knowledge. Since its inception in 2012, the college functions as the nodal agency in Kottayam for the CHILDLINE India Foundation.
The students bring home-made food packets every Friday and are distributed to the inmates of Navajeevan, a home for the destitute under the banner of Snehannam. Through this unique practice, around 25000 food packets were given to the needy since 2016 till the lockdown due to the outbreak of Corona.
