We Care!

Social volunteering?

Racism?

Terrorism?

Politics?

Yes, We Care!

Our semester magazine We Care is out again, with an exciting new look and feel. We have expanded our scope to include a wider variety of topics and broader perspectives on various issues. So what can you expect in this issue?

For starters, we have the cover story – Four Hours a Week, which is about two Christites who work toward change in their own ways. Another feature to look out for is the one on Sri Lanka which gives us two perspectives on the Sri lanka crisis – a pro Tamil and a pro Sinhalese – along with a brief historical overview of the issue. A case study on Uchengamma and her fight against child marriage also proves to be an interesting read.

A big thank you to everyone who worked toward making this experiment a reality, and a huge congratulations to Publications and everyone who helped, in every little way, in making this such a success. We at Publications hope that even this issue, like every other one, proves to be a catalyst in the change we are working towards.

Three cheers for the cause!

Publications activities begin! :)

On the 18th we had the ice breaker session of publications. It involved spending quality time with the children of the housekeeping staff who reside in campus. Being the first time for many of our volunteers, facing the enthusiastic children was a wonderful and memorable experience. 🙂

We also learnt how to update the blog, edit posts and so on and the result of it is what you are reading right now. We look forward to being a part of more such activities while involving ourselves and helping the cause, together…

Keep reading for more updates. Cheers 🙂

We Care… You can!

Aloha!

Centre for Social Action, Christ University, is proud to announce that we’re coming out with yet another issue of our semester magazine We Care. We Care is a social magazine which serves as a medium of expression for the students of Christ College, and other interested outside individuals/agencies, about the burning issues in our world. It contains articles, poems, compilations, cartoons, thoughts, views, qwetches, and other sorts of expression through paper, on social issues, problems and controversies.

These thoughts often go unspoken, voices unheard. But through We Care, these ideas and voices find a new aura of strength to inspire a difference. Often, these expressions are highly thought provoking ones, breaking through stereotypes, and taking up previously undiscussed topics.
