Outcomes of Extension activities

Govt. Hrangbana College has made a significant contribution to the neighborhood community and the environment by organizing several extension activities. The institution effectively runs the National Service Scheme (NSS), the National Cadet Corps (NCC), Eco clubs, and other clubs and cells. Through these, the institution engages in a variety of community outreach initiatives.

When carrying out extension activities, the institution places great importance on the involvement of students, a charitable mindset, and the holistic development of students into responsible citizens.

Blood Donation Drives: Govt. Hrangbana College has a long tradition of organizing blood donation drives, and both students and faculty members volunteer to donate their blood to such events. Through these blood donation drives, students become truly aware of the importance of donating blood for others and the health benefits of donating blood for themselves.

Plantation Drives: Tree plantation drives are frequently organized at college plantation sites, adopted villages, and other places. In such events, students learn about the vital role of trees in preventing climate change, improving air quality, preserving biodiversity, and balancing the ecosystem. They also plant and care for saplings, providing them with hands-on experience. The NSS and Eco Club of the institution frequently check on and take care of the planted trees.

Cleanliness Drives: The institution organizes cleanliness drives regularly through its NSS Cell, Eco Club, and different departments. Through such activities, students become fully conscious of the importance of keeping their immediate surroundings clean. They also learned about the value of protecting and maintaining the cleanliness of rivers, mountains, and other natural areas.

 Special Campings: The institution also organized special camps in its adopted and nearby villages. The needs of the communities were given the highest priority in such camps. Volunteers constructed waiting areas, water tanks, public urinals, and other amenities as part of their voluntary activity. Such activities help students become responsible citizens by focusing on and servicing the needs of communities.

Awareness Programs: The NSS, NCC, different cells, clubs, and departments conducted several awareness programs ranging from mental health to environmental awareness. Volunteers also carried out awareness campaigns in the surrounding area and towns on themes such as AIDS awareness, blood donation, cleanliness, the need for rainwater collecting, the dangers of using plastic and tobacco, etc. Such awareness campaigns benefited both students and communities in creating a positive social environment.

Charitable Works: The institution values charity works. During the nationwide lockdown, volunteers visited several households and provided financial and other assistance. The students often visited orphanages and blind schools to assist with daily tasks. They also lend assistance to those in need as and when required. These activities were very helpful in developing students' compassion for others.

All the extension activities carried out by the institution shaped the students into responsible citizens and helped them build relationships with the community and the natural world while boosting their self-confidence. The extension activities also helped communities become more conscious of their personal and natural environment.
