For some, college life is just not confined to classrooms, movie halls and entertainment hubs. It includes managing time efficiently, reaching out to different communities while striking a balance between studies and social work.

The young and enthusiastic army of Leo Club-Visakhapatnam Greater will vouch for the same. Sharing their unforgettable experience in the service domain, they say exploring new facets of life brought them closer and explore beyond classroom sessions.

Developing different project works and visiting various homes such as old age, juvenile and visually-challenged ones, they understood how little gestures can brighten many lives. The wide exposure has changed the outlook of K. Rohini, student of Dr. L.B. College. She says, “By managing assignments and executing project works, you tend to become a good team player and improve your employability skills.”

The club focuses on engaging the Leos at least twice a month in service-based projects apart from leadership development programmes. “A lot of planning goes into each project. You need to plan, interact and be open to change and motivate others to join the bandwagon. This helped me overcome stage fear,” says K.S.V. Mohan, one of the Leos.

Doing yeoman service includes a little bit of sacrifice too. “Instead of planning for a movie during weekends we end up designing a project. Meeting the prisoners and people at old age home and spending quality time with them make more sense to us than spending two-and-a-half hours in a theatre,” says K. Nikita, student.

Since the academic year is coming to a close, the team has plans to start book and cloth banks. Those who like to join the team in donating books, uniforms and old clothes can contact 9949121919.
