LJ Sahyog

LJ Sahyog

In our initiative known as "LJ Sahyog," approximately 1800 engineering students from the campus collaborated with 434 villages in the Ahmedabad District through diverse and innovative programs aimed at enhancing the quality of life in these communities. This joint effort closely involved the college and the District Development Office (DDO).

During this program, students immersed themselves in the rural setting, spending three days and two nights with unfamiliar families. Engaging in various assigned tasks, they gained exposure to rural life, fostering empathy and social consciousness. This hands-on experience provided valuable insights into rural India, contributing to both their professional and personal growth.

Throughout these field programs, students communicated significant government initiatives such as Digital India, Swachh Bharat, Start-up India, Make in India, and more to the villagers. They identified technical challenges faced by the community, subsequently adopting these challenges as projects in their college coursework. Each team developed websites, social media pages, and similar digital platforms for their respective villages, incorporating data, images, videos, historical facts, and other relevant information.

Recently, the Honorable Chief Minister of Gujarat, Shri Vijay Rupani, commended several teams for creating websites, and on Gujarat's foundation day at Viramgam on May 1, 2017, he inaugurated 50 websites. Mr. Shankar Chaudhary, the former Health Minister, also launched 20 websites during the event.

To empower villages further, the college conducted training for Village Community Entrepreneurs (VCEs) in two phases, covering various digital technologies. This initiative aimed to enable them to update and maintain websites, establish micro rural entrepreneurship modules as part of the Start-up India program, and create value for both the individuals and the villages. Following the field efforts, students continue to implement follow-up action programs in collaboration with these villages to sustain the initiated initiatives.
