Joy of Giving Week - October 2nd - 8th, 2012

Since 2009, when the Joy of Giving Week was launched as a nation-wide "festival of philanthropy", XLRI has been anchoring it for the entire city of Jamshedpur. During the last three years, by involving and mobilizing support from the local community (corporate, schools, civil society organizations, etc.) XLRI students initiated various programs, e.g., collected and distributed 4-½ trucks of usable clothes to the poor through Vastra-Samman, raised Rs. 2.5 lacs for Leh Relief Fund, provided training to 250 SHG leaders, mobilized collection and distribution of dry-ration for the draught-effected villages in Jharkhand, organized health camps in slums and villages, etc.
