COMMUNITY OUTREACH PROJECT
Reaching out to Children of Bahu Udeshya Seva Samiti
Teaching The Underprivileged Skills of Making Handicrafts
‘There is no exercise better for the heart than reaching down and lifting people up.’ Bringing the smile on the faces is not easy, but if you try you succeed. Students of Community Service Club invested their time and skills to teach 35 underprivileged children of Bahu Udeshya Seva Samiti aged 12 to16 who visited our school on November 4, 2017. Our grade 7 and 8 students taught them the skill of making handicrafts (pen stands from old jute and weaving baskets from recycled sheets). Our students who had learnt this during their Art activity periods as a part of School Enterprise Challenge were glad to pass on their skills. The activity witnessed the absolute participation by these vulnerable children and also enhanced their creative and imaginative skills. The experience taught the students that unless a life is lived for others, it is not worthwhile.
