BSS Initiates the Social Awareness Internship Programme News Story

DATE: Beaconhouse Central Region (BCR) has initiated the Social Awareness Internship Programme (SAIP) which aims to make our students better citizens of tomorrow. Students have a key role to play in the nation building process as the young generation has the power to make a difference if their talent is properly utilised and channelled in the right direction.  Most of the students do not have ample opportunity to get involved with such activities. The basic objective of SAIP is to bridge this gap by providing opportunity to the students of BSS and getting them involved with different organisations engaged in social sectors such as health, education, environment, etc. Exposing students to the actual living and working conditions of the lower social strata of society will compel students to think about these less fortunate and make them more socially aware of social issues in Pakistan.

In addition to career guidance being provided by BSS in shaping up careers for its students, there is a need to ensure that BSS students become more aware and sensitised to the social issues and problems being faced by Pakistan. This would not only help them in becoming socially responsible citizens, but would also benefit them while applying for higher education in foreign and local universities since they give a lot of weightage to such activities when shortlisting students.

Beaconhouse plans to achieve this by creating an enabling environment and building coalitions and partnerships amongst BSS students and well-reputed NGOs working in different social sectors. BSS helps students get involved with the projects and work at grass root levels with these organisations.

The students were required to submit a written report at the end of their internships outlining their responsibilities, knowledge gained, how they will use this knowledge in their everyday lives, and the positive and negative aspects of this project along with improvement suggestions.
