Student-Mediated Initiative for Learning to Excel (SMILE)

Introduction

As a part of its community outreach programme, Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad, in association with Wagh Bakri Tea Group and Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation, has set up a supplementary education/resource centre called SMILE (Student-Mediated Initiative for Learning to Excel) under the Gyan Shakti Marg flyover opposite the Heritage Campus of IIMA, for the benefit of underprivileged students living in and around Vastrapur, where the Institute is located. The centre is open to any student who wishes to use its resources. Classes are conducted for students belonging to standards 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th (Science, Arts and Commerce). IIMA students make up the volunteer team which coordinates the activities of SMILE. They interact regularly with the families to which the SMILE students belong. The Dean (Alumni & External Relations) provides the overall leadership for this initiative.
