NSS/IPSSR
(National Service Scheme/IPSians social responsibility)

Main objective of our department is to inculcate the social and moral values among the students. So that where ever our students go, they have a feel of social responsibility in their mind. College life is the most important period of every student, where he/she experiences N number of things. This is the time when we can develop a sense of social work and their responsibilities towards the society. Good society or environment can be created by sapling a root of ethical values among students, so that the upcoming generation can be grown in a good manner. At this stage students are of full energy and we try to utilize their energy in the welfare of society.

Protecting Habitats at IPSA-

Life without water is infeasible on any planet. No creature on earth can survive without water. Therefore, we at IPSA try to make available water for all the birds and animals, who are residing in the campus. Water arrangement is usually done before the summer strikes. For that we hang earthen pots at various places. It's always mesmerising to hear the chirruping of several birds, and see them roaming around the pots to satisfy their thirst.

Volunteering at social events-

IPSians always try to contribute their services to society. Apparently, we at IPS Academy allow our students to cooperate with external agencies, namely, NGOs, government sectors or any organisation which is working to uplift many people. Our volunteers have provided their services to the event “Atrang”, it was an event organized by an organization, for special children. Volunteers managed the event in a successful way.

Festivals with slum kids-

Sometimes it's better to spread and share happiness on special occasions. Therefore, our volunteers are motivated to celebrate festivals with kids who belong from slum areas. Kite festival, Basant panchali, Holi and Diwali are the main festivals, when we invite these kids to IPSA and distribute gifts amongst them. Moreover, we often conduct few activities and sports, by which all members make a special bond of understanding and exchange knowledge.

Project Sewadham-

Sewadham ashram is situated near Badnagar in Ankitgram District Ujjain. The ashram is providing shelter to more than 650 people, who are neglected by society. Volunteers are taken on a regular tour to the ashram, so that they can see the world of deprived people. Many volunteers are inspired by the atmosphere, and have future plans to do something extraordinary for society. Our main aim is to connect privileged volunteers with the special and deprived children.

Orientation- Menstrual hygiene and awareness-

Menstruation cycle is a natural process, although many societies have considered it as a taboo. People often try to avoid any conversation about it. Infact, there are several myths in our society regarding the same. Despite all such barriers, we IPSians are raising awareness campaigns to kill the taboo. Our volunteers visit many rural areas, and talk with girls and women about the challenges they face during their periods, and how people react to it. We have commenced a research project regarding the same, and now imparting fruitful information to numerous females.

Our objective behind this donation is, If the government school students get such facilities that are in the private school then they too can move forward without any obstacle. Slowly we are going to adopt the school and help them in the upliftment of the students. It is the duty of every private institution to cooperate with the government organizations around it, the government helps us in many ways, so why not help their organizations. In government schools we can see that there are also N number of talented students, if private institutes come forward to help, they can make their career and become the face of society. We are working for the upliftment of society, our small efforts are bringing changes in the lives of such students.

Green campus

IPSSR, IPSA has conducted a green campus drive under which students have planted Peepal plants. The main objective behind this drive is to make the IPSA campus more beautiful and eco-friendly. Every student has planted a sapling on campus, after a few years when they look back they will feel proud and happy. Because a single tree plays so many roles like it provides Oxygen, maintains the level of groundwater, provides shelter to many people and animals too. A green campus well-planned and well- managed, is more resilient, sustainable in terms of livelihood improvement. Increasing pollution decreases the availability of natural resources and also increases the frequency of climate changes. Urbanization is an invitation to a drastic change in the environment.

Correct placement of trees around the campus can reduce the need for air conditioning by 30 percent also it will reduce the chances of winter heating bills.
