UDYAM-the Social Responsibility Committee of Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies (NMIMS), Bangalore collaborated with Rise Against Hunger India (RAHI), an international NGO, to organize their annual Walk-a-Thon amidst the buzzing roads of Bangalore early this month. The walk was to create awareness about “HUNGER DISPARITY” and show the world that it is, in fact, possible to end hunger by the year 2030. The march witnessed hundreds of NMIMS students walking through the streets of Bangalore to highlight hunger related issues which need to be addressed urgently.
The 5 km Walkathon commenced at Forum Mall and ended at NMIMS. It opened with a street play called ‘Bhookmari’ staged by the students at NMIMS. The participants of the street play highlighted crucial issues pertaining to hunger to sensitize society. During the walk, students along with the RAHI representatives raised slogans and carried posters banners, showing the impact of hunger disparity in our country today.
