As a part of Institutional Social Responsibility activity, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has a rich heritage of undertaking varied outreach programs to help underprivileged members of society, promoting art & culture, and promoting intellectual thought process among students, faculty, and the general public.
BCCM, Bhubaneswar, offers free computer education to the economically backward community. The institute also actively supports an orphanage at Choudwar, an old age home at Naraj, an Autistic School at Bhubaneswar, and a daycare center, ‘Ashraya,’ for the differently-abled at Cuttack. The Institute also helps NGOs in Odisha for the differently-abled and had taken steps to consolidate them under one confederation “United Voice for the Disabled”.
With the aim of providing easy access to education and the right environment, a portion of BCCM’s large library has been dedicated and made open to the public of Odisha. Outside students can access a large resource of books, journals, and magazines that are made available to them free of cost. The then President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee, dedicated the library to the people of Odisha.
BCCM is also actively engaged in promoting Indian art and culture, holding events under SPICMACAY, the Indian Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), and the Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH). Furthermore, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan has collaborated with the Infosys Foundation to conduct a cultural outreach program for promoting and creating awareness regarding the nearly extinct dance, music, and other art forms of the state.
