About MSR

A decade ago, some students from the batch of 2010-12 of N. L. Dalmia Institute of Management Studies and Research, Mumbai came up with an idea of forming a committee that would devote themselves towards the betterment of the society. This idea got recognized in 2011, when a committee called ‘Sparssh’ was formed and this provided students an opportunity to mutually serve the society by realizing their social responsibility. ‘Sparssh’ the name that translates to ‘touching lives for a better tomorrow’, and ever since its inception, it has been on a constant endeavour to stay true to its name. Their aim is to spread smiles, not just by donating or resourcing the needy, but also by spending time with them, fulfilling their wishes, and by being a part of their hardships and happiness. In the year 2017, it was renamed as ‘My Social Responsibility’, in short referred to as ‘MSR’. The vision of MSR is to provide an opportunity to students to help the needy and unprivileged sections of society. For smooth functioning, the committee is divided into 5 teams namely: Rural Team, People’s Connect Team, Events Team, Social Media Team and the Technical Team, where all of them working collaboratively towards achieving the vision and mission of MSR. Over the years, Team MSR conducted various activities, but still it felt an urge to expand its presence and dreamt to work for the holistic development of a tribal village. This dream came true in 2017, when the committee along with the support of NLDIMSR adopted Kondgaon, a tribal village. This village is located 70 kms from the Institute and comes under Vikramgarh Taluka of Palghar district. The aim of adopting the village was to make the students socially responsible and provide help for development of Kondgaon and its residents. In this village, the committee conducts its activities on 4 verticals- Education, Health and Hygiene, Skill Development, Environment and Sanitation. Apart from its initiatives in Kondgaon, the committee constantly looks for opportunities to work in collaboration with various NGOs and conducts many campaigns with them. This is a brief introduction of MSR and its activities towards betterment of mankind.
