The first and second-year MA students of Applied Sociology interacted with a few representatives from Indivillage on the 25th of February, 2019. The session was organized by the Department of Sociology and Social Work.
As global crises and assertions are being made for a collective need, to work on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this organization has been working towards attaining some of the SDGs in rural Indian landscapes. Some of the goals that IndiVillage has been working towards include Quality Education, Gender Equality, Decent Work and Economic Growth. The organization primarily works with impact outsourcing to bring about better opportunities and for growth in rural India, through Information Technology (IT) and Information Technology Enabled Services (ITES).
The session was fruitful for students interested in the development sector, and the first-year students to the network who would soon be interning. Furthermore, through interactions, the discussants also provided insights into the challenges and necessity for students of humanities and budding social scientists to work for the social impact sector.
