Vatsalya, the Social Responsibility club of the Indian Institute of Management Visakhapatnam, strives to sensitize the future business leaders of the institute towards social responsibilities and the importance of corporate social responsibility (CSR) and environmental, social, and governance (ESG). Vātsalya (वात्सल्य) refers to "loving-kindness," which means upholding the promise to provide altruistic services to enhance the community's standard of living. Vatsalya offers a helping hand and basic amenities to the underprivileged, as well as spread awareness related to social issues and physical and mental well-being for the upliftment of society. To fulfill the requirements of those in need, we make the most of the knowledge and resources at our disposal. With the help of the administration, staff, and Student Affairs Council at IIMV, we collect and send relief funds when natural disasters happen. Vatsalya works in tandem with several non-profit organizations for the betterment of society, thereby enabling IIM Visakhapatnam to develop a network hub of NGOs to bring visible change in society. Vatsalya has collaborated with the Ekam Foundation, Mumbai, to provide financial assistance to children through the Surgery Support Program. Vatsalya has also collaborated with SAKONSA, a social welfare foundation that focuses on developing a broader mindset about UN goals.
