“We never imagined a life like this.”    The first batch of participants in the Amrita Rural Internship program fanned out across India in the summer of 2014 and reported the experience to be one of the most memorable of their lives. A part of Amrita SeRVe, Amma’s village rehabilitation project, the internships were also Amma’s idea. She described the project as a way for young people to help villagers find solutions to their problems and for the young people to gain understanding of the challenges faced by their fellow countrymen and women, as well as their strong values and resilience.  Students and staff from many departments participated, including the Schools of Engineering (Mechanical, Chemical and Computer Engineering), Business, Social Work, Physical Education and English, as well as CIR and CREATE.

Over 800 students and 200 faculty members volunteered took leadership for the campaign which started at 8:30 a.m. from Karunagappally to Amritapuri. The highlight of the day is that no one would come to the campus by private car or bike on that day. Day scholars shall avail of public transport facilities or use bicycles to reach the campus. The objective of the campaign is to promote the use of public transportation, car sharing and emission–free vehicles as an effort to address the crisis of environmental pollution. Contributing towards a ‘Greener Tomorrow’ is drawn inspiration from Amma’s words on our duties and responsibilities towards the protection and preservation of our Mother Nature.
