Nirmaan Organization

"We have only one passion, The rise of a great nation"

        

Nirmaan is a constructive citizen movement for an empowered India, thereby making the world a better place to live in. Nirmaan was founded on 12th February, 2005 by a group of BITS-Pilani University students with a passion for humanity and to fulfill our responsibility towards our less privileged brothers & sisters.

Why?
  • 42% of Indians are living on less than $1.25/day
  • Around 50% of Indian children are malnourished
  • Around 13 million out of school children & 52% children drop-out before reaching 8th standard and so on..

We have resolved to change the scenario & hence the movement started.

What is the significance and symbolism of the Nirmaan logo ?
The Nirmaan logo depicts the evolution of a transformed society, as envisioned by the members of Nirmaan. The logo portrays 4 people (represented by 4 different colors) and a flame on the letter 'I' of Nirmaan.
The four people holding each other's shoulders depict a diverse nationwide community which endeavors to bring about a difference in the society they live in and are willing to work for the common cause of the betterment of the country. It stands for the selfless involvement of members hailing from distinct parts of the country. The flame on the letter 'I' depicts the intense determination, and burning desire of the Nirmaan member, to make India a beautiful home, not just for a few, but for every Indian who deserves equal opportunity as anybody else.

Pilani is where it all started.

Started by a group of BITSians under the name 'My India' at BITS, Pilani, Nirmaan has grown into a full-fledged organisation with many chapters across the country and Pilani is where its roots are the strongest.

Nirmaan-Pilani now has more than 100 dedicated student volunteers working in the villages of Rajasthan to provide better educational and employment opportunities for the poor and the marginalized rural population.

A number of projects are being undertaken in the field of education: Disha, Gyan Bodh, School Adoption Program, Shiksha ki Ore, and Utkarsh.
To provide employment to rural women, Self-Help Groups (SHGs) have been set up in the villages of Baas and Khedla, to help women dictate their own terms in life.

Participatory Community Development aims to understand the community and identify local leaders who will take up the work of developing their villages. Parishodh aims to find technological solutions to social problems.

The Bangalore chapter of Nirmaan was established in early 2007 by a small group of BITS Alumni and BITS Practice School (internship) student members. Initially started as a fund raising chapter, it has now expanded its domain to ground-level activities as well. It is targeted at raising huge support to other chapters, apart from taking up various development projects and building the whole organization.

Nirmaan-Bangalore started its activities by supporting WARDS (a school for disabled children) and later adopted two government higher primary schools as part of the School Adoption Program. Volunteers take up bridge courses and activity based learning modules, aimed at inculcating interest in students towards education. Most of the volunteers of the chapter hail from different IT companies and local communities in Bangalore.

The Goa Chapter of Nirmaan Organization was established on 2nd October 2007 at BITS Pilani-Goa Campus (now BITS-Pilani, K.K. Birla Goa Campus).

This chapter is unique in itself since the area of operation of this chapter is an urban-slum setup, which is quite different from a village in various aspects. The slum is named ZARI; spread over 6.2 acres of land adjoining the BITS Goa Campus and Zuari Industries Limited. The students of BITS Pilani have taken up a holistic approach in improving the socio-economic fabric of the region, and hence Nirmaan Goa has three functioning verticals: Employment Operations, Knowledge Operations and Cleanliness, Health Awareness Operations and a Tech-Enhanced Cell which facilitates use of technology for social betterment!

NIRMAAN started its operations in Hyderabad in 2008 by adopting two Govt. schools as a part of School Adoption Program (SAP). NIRMAAN-Hyderabad now has around 15 volunteers working dedicatedly to provide better educational and livelihood opportunities for the economically disadvantaged sections of the society. Most of the volunteers at Hyderabad hail from different IT companies.


At Nirmaan we consider each and every volunteer as an asset to the organization. Apart from a few highly dedicated full time members who take care of day to day activities and administration, all the projects and grass root activities are handled by volunteers.

Nirmaan believes that all who share a commitment to our mission are welcome to join us in our work regardless of their background, ethnic origin, race, age or gender. Every member of the family is valuable and everyone's time, talents, and efforts are special gifts that are to be appreciated, respected, recognized, and never taken for granted.
