Campus Workers Campaign

IITK Students’ Gymkhana started a campaign to provide financial help to the workers of the Institute. Campus workers working in shops, eateries, canteens, and as vendors, rickshaw pullers etc. suffered heavy financial losses due the Covid-19 pandemic repeated lock downs. Through the generous donations of our alumni and well-wishers, IIT Kanpur along with Students’ Gymkhana raised INR 75,90,909. Our esteemed alumnus, Dr. Dev Joneja generously contributed USD 55000 for this cause. Such huge support from the Institute, helped ease out the financial problems for our campus workers as the donations received were used to pay back loans, buy rations and other everyday essentials. Our campus workers are grateful for this generosity and some have expressed their gratitude.
