Gifting PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) Kits
With the COVID-19 pandemic grappling the world, staff members and students of our school stepped forward to make their contribution as responsible citizens. The staff members contributed one day’s salary (INR 1,86,000) while the students of Good Earth Enterprise (run under School Enterprise Challenge, UK based charity Teach a Man to Fish) contributed INR 42,000 from the fundraising events of the enterprise. To show gratitude to the corona warriors, the school presented 350 PPE Kits (Personal Protective Equipment) worth INR 2,28,000 to the Chief Medical Health Officer on May 1, 2020. The school realizes that every small drop in the ocean can have a ripple effect on the ocean and the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.
Given Below is the Detailed Report Written by Rudransh Kantharia of Grade 12, Member of Media Relations Department in This Context
Under the aegis of School Enterprise Challenge, our school administers a business enterprise christened "Good Earth", with the motive to ensure environment sustainability, while concurrently endeavouring to lay the foundation of a developed community. Our business venture merchandises in an array of products ranging from saplings, compost made from organic wastes to ornate handicrafts. The students from Nursery to Grade-12 engage themselves in this noble pursuit, and come up with unique and eco-friendly trailblazing ideas. Adhering to the 3 R's principle, our products such as Ganesha idols, earthen lamps, paintings, wall hangings, jute bags and paper weights are made from waste materials.
We are keen on advocating the notion that it’s the 'people' and the 'communities' that are the most integral aspect of a nation, the torchbearers of tomorrow and essentially a paragon human resource. As a result, profits collected through various fundraising events such as Parent-Teacher Meetings are utilised in community outreach projects, such as setting up libraries in government schools, donating geysers to old age homes, solar lamps to a village and investing in a skill development centre at the school.
Continuing this legacy of magnanimity and philanthrophy we have donated 350 PPE kits to the Chief Medical Health Officer, Indore in order to fight this pandemic. Doctors, professionals and the government are putting their best foot forward. This is a small way to show our heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for their diligent and relentless efforts. In these dire circumstances, all of us should stay united, optimistic and indeed, a scintilla of hope will follow. As responsible citizens, it is our chief responsibility to abide by the WHO guidelines.
