Hyderabad: Students of BITS Pilani, Hyderabad, have come together to start a voluntary work titled ‘BITS Pilani-Scio Benevolent Foundation’ to transform the lives of young students. Nelakuduru Vineeth is the brainchild behind this initiative who is also the founding director of Scio Benevolent Foundation. With his team of young guns, he wants to educate and transform the lives of students. SCIO aims at counselling students of secondary, higher and undergraduate colleges. Any student from Class VIII-XII can benefit from this programme.
Vineeth says that the main aim of this foundation is to focus on students who want something different from their lives. Volunteers of this foundation interact with parents and counsel them to allow their children choose a career of their choice rather than forcing them to follow the sheep-herd.
They interact with the parents and explain them the benefits of various courses, it’s not only engineering and medical but also there are many art courses and designing courses which students would be interested in, but they could not pursue those courses because parents as usual want their children to opt for the regular courses which their neighbour child opts for or they just want their kids to follow the regular trend.
The main intention of this foundation is to counsel a child as well as his parents so that they can allow their kids to choose and follow their own dream job. Though Vineeth is the brainchild behind this initiative, his team of 50 volunteers are working tirelessly to educate children.
Though it is a voluntary work, the students also get sponsored at times for carrying out a noble job.
