CENTRE FOR SOCIAL ACTION (CSA)

 

"We Care"

 

Centre for Social Action (CSA) serves as a dynamic platform for students' engagement in fostering a better society through sustainable initiatives and societal transformation, where student communities are sensitized to various issues affecting disadvantaged populations. Established in 1999 within CHRIST (Deemed to be University), CSA coordinates social awareness programs for students and undertakes community development projects for marginalized communities. It embodies a student-led initiative dedicated to cultivating a compassionate and equitable society, with a particular emphasis on children. CSA addresses critical concerns encompassing child rights, socio-economic empowerment of women, youth and farmers, community mobilization, and environmental sustainability and climate action.


As an integral component of CHRIST (Deemed to be University), CSA's primary objective is to raise awareness among students about the diverse challenges encountered by underprivileged and marginalized components of society. This objective aims to facilitate lasting improvements in the lives of those in need through active student engagement, while instilling in students the values and principles necessary for meaningful societal contributions. CSA was founded with the vision of integrating the principles of social responsibility, aligning with the core values, vision, and mission of CHRIST (Deemed to be University), into the student community.
CSA remains steadfast in its commitment to empowering students to drive positive social change. This dedication forms the foundation of its establishment and continues to propel the organization forward in implementing diverse development projects and social awareness initiatives. CSA aims for a Better Society through Sustainable Action and Social Transformation.
