Due to the genuine interest in serving the society and to work for the poor and underprivileged people the institution encourages and promotes various social welfare activities. The institution through the development foundation ‘INDEVIN’ is associated with many NGOs, CBOs, Youth Clubs, Institutions, organizations and Social workers, volunteers to promote and carry out various welfare activities. We have our NSS wing through which students get a scope to do various activities of social importance. ‘INDEVIN’ is the social responsibility foundation for Trident Academy of Technology that works on skill development and social welfare sectors. The foundation is an initiative of working with the vulnerable sections of the society and addressing various socio-economic challenges that are hindrances on the way of development. It aims to revolutionize skill development through various innovative interventions, by leveraging technology and to create more numbers of skilled manpower which will help immensely to generate more numbers of jobs or working opportunities for unemployed youths. ”SKILL-EM” the first skilling project has been conceptualized under ‘INDEVIN’. This project has been submitted to NSDC, Govt. of India for approval, registration and necessary help. Once approved as an extensive activity, we plan to set up small skill development centers in different parts of Odisha and then it will be extended to Jharkhand and North eastern states. Beside this, the foundation emphasizes on Education, Health, Environmental issues, women & child welfare and any other issues that need attention through various social welfare interventions.
As a part of social responsibility of the institution, two developmental programmes of social value for the session 2014-2015 have been the international grant from the American Networking giant CISCO amounting to USD 20,000 for ICT based computer awareness in remote schools. Two funded projects are being considered (one by NRDMS, DST, Govt. of India and the other by Ministry of Environment and Forests) in the areas of ‘Tribal youths and participation in making an ethno-economic plants database’ and ‘water and sanitation’. Under ‘E-Abhiyan’ students of the institute have visited 209 rural schools to teach the fundamentals of computer. Furthermore, the Institution has extended support during natural calamities such as floods, drought, and earthquake. Financial support has been provided towards Cyclone Philin (2013) and Nepal Earthquake (2015) victims.
