Importance of Philanthropy
Pranay - our Social Initiative:
Passion, love and hard wok combined can do
magic, it can change lives and revolutionize
civilizations.

PRANAY, a social initiative by SIMS is the first of


its kind to be launched by a B school which
signifies the beautiful reality of the scope for
creating a life of dreams.
It works towards not just spreading joy and
bringing smiles on the faces of under privileged
but also believes in its potential to bring about a
phenomenal change in the existing economy.
PRANAY is not about sacrifice and selfless work
but about loving yourself and your work so much
that it touches the lives of the people around you.
It’s about working towards the well being of the
society in tune with your own dreams and wishes.
It’s about rising above the existing evils like power
and arrogance while keeping in touch with the
pride and esteem experienced by doing good
work.
Through our efforts at PRANAY, we help the less fortunate in realizing
their true potential while truly comprehending the significance of
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR). Working with NGOs helps us to
keep in touch with social realities and inspires us to make meaningful
contributions to society; while simultaneously furnishing us with real
time exposure for implementing and applying our theoretical knowledge
in environments of adversity.
PRANAY works closely with NGO’s like Akanksha, Mobile-Crèche, Beauty
without Cruelty (BWC), Queen’s Mary Training Institute (QMTI), CRY and
MAHER. We’ve organized events like Medical Camps, Walkathons,
Literary fests and blood donation camps to do our bit in past.Recently
we have signed a MoU with PMC to make Business plans for slum
dwellers. As a part of the collaboration, we have started working with an
organization called PRAGATI that works towards employing women in
slum areas by training them to stitch and is steadily growing into a small
scale business.

PRANAY integrates elements of humanity, managerial skills, art and


people. It isn’t a club or cell; it’s the soul of SIMS. It comprises of all
student managers doing work that is a stark proof of the fact that they
have the ability to heal the world and create better things in life.

In the words of one of the founding members of Pranay,

“Pranay is not an NGO neither is it a cell and it most definitely isn’t a


club. Pranay is in fact an incessant effort to reach out. Pranay is not a
compulsion, it’s a choice you make - the choice to make a difference…”
