Social Service Club

"ARPAN", the social club of Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Petroleum Technology (RGIPT), was founded in 2009. The club evolved over the years taking tiny steps to become an instrument of social change. Today ARPAN consists of hundreds of devoted volunteers who care enough to believe they can make the world a better place. ARPAN is not just a social club, it is a mission to improve the lives of the less privileged.

The greatest barrier to development is illiteracy. Hence our prime objective is to encourage young children to read and write. Almost two dozen volunteers visit the Gyan Arpan Teaching Centre, a Primary School in Jais every day to impart education to the children. The volunteers also prepare the students for admission in the Navodaya Vidyalaya, prestigious government schools. Regular examinations are held at the centre and the meritorious candidates are rewarded. Apart from this free stationery and books are also provided to all the students.

On the occasion of Republic Day every year, ARPAN organizes a science fair. Nearly three hundred students from the nearby schools attend the event. It is a sight to behold when hundreds of children line up in queues and huddle around each science model. The students of RGIPT put up various science models showcasing the basics of science and its utility in our day to day lives.

The smile on the faces of children brings sheer happiness and satisfaction. This has inspired ARPAN to celebrate all the festivals amidst these children. The glow on their faces reflecting the light of the Diya on Diwali; the innocent joy of chasing the colourful kites on Makar-Sankranti; faces beaming with patriotism while singing the national anthem on Independence Day- are some instances which bring ARPAN and young children closer and make these festivals special.

Some of the notable initiatives taken by ARPAN include:

  • Cloth and Mattress Distribution-Clothes and mattresses are distributed among all the needy people in the nearby areas of Jais and Rae Bareli. The students as well as the faculty members of RGIPT participate effectively in making this event possible.
  • Blood Donation: Blood is the most precious gift that anyone can give to another person — the gift of life. A decision to donate one's blood is one of the most selfless decisions one can take. ARPAN organizes a blood donation event each year in the campus itself in the presence of official medical staff and members of the Red Cross Society.
  • Swachh Bharat Abhiyan-The importance of cleanliness and hygiene is stressed through the numerous Swachhta campaigns undertaken by ARPAN. Cleanliness drives are organized in the nearby villages and social awareness is spread among the people.
