Students of IFIM group of Institutions organized a Flash mob and Skit at Burger King and Concorde Manhattans and various Apartments in Electronic City on 18th and 19th Feb as part of the awareness and promotional campaign of Kanyathon 2017, the annual 5k and 10k run, an initiative by the students of the institute. At Concorde, the residents were impressed by the powerful social message conveyed through the skit. The people were keen to know about the event.
The response was overwhelming as the crowd warmed up to the theme “Save a Girl Child”. The proceeds from this run is handed over to an NGO working for the cause of women empowerment. This year the institute has tied up with CRY (Child Rights and You), a very established NGO in this field.
The college runs a 24X7 helpline called SAFE (Students Against Female Exploitation) that shields any female victim in trouble who calls the helpline. Adding another feather to the cap is the Launch of SAFE App this March 5th during Kanyathon 2017.
Every year some eminent personalities have been lending their support to the cause by making their presence felt for the event. This year we have an array of eminent personalities as chief guests like
Prof. Rajeev Gowda – Sitting member of Rajya Sabha
Ms. Vinita Sood- Wife of Commissioner of Police
Ms. Akshara Hasaan- Film Personality and Daughter of Actor Kamal Hasaan
