Teaching Initiatives for Local Communities
Swastyayan…A Commitment is an initiative launched in 2013 by Assam Don Bosco University (India) undertaken by over 150 student volunteers and faculty members. The project focuses on conducting tutorial classes for underprivileged children based on their scholastic needs. In these classes, different subjects, such as, Mathematics, General Sciences, Social Sciences and English are taught, besides providing inputs on soft skills, career guidance and personality development. Currently, over 200 children from the neighborhood of the University benefit from the activities of Swastyayan. "Swabalamban", another initiative launched in 2014, aims at providing technical skills to youth of the areas surrounding the university campus to increase their employability as well as to make them self-employable.
