A Journey of Growth and Empowerment: My Experience as an Abhyudaya Mentor
Abhyudaya is a transformative experiential learning course in which participants of the full-time PGDM programme mentor schoolchildren from underprivileged backgrounds. These bright schoolchildren are called Sitara, which means a star.
SPJIMR participants visit Sitara homes throughout the academic year to conduct mentoring sessions. Based on their first-hand exposure to the challenges of low-income neighbourhoods, participants also understand the significance of sustainable business development. Know more
