Art of Giving
True joy lies in the act of giving without an expectation of receiving something in return. Not only does working for mankind and sharing happiness bring us joy, it teaches us the importance of taking care of others. As a staff of KIIT, we are inspired by the philosophy of Art of Giving. I personally believe that for a true human being every day is an art of giving day. In our day-to-day life we often feel pleasure by giving our helping hand to the people in need and bring smile on their face. Inspired by our beloved Founder Sir, we all KIIT family members celebrate Art of Giving Day on 17th May every year. This year also we celebrated International Day of Art of Giving by visiting the orphanages at following locations and distributed the Bag of Happiness containing a school bag, geometry box, note copies (2 Nos.), pen, pencil and erasers to the needy kids and spent some quality time with all of them along with our staff members of School of Civil Engineering. Indeed a great moment will be cherished forever.
