JOY OF GIVING
To instill a spirit of generosity and values and to sensitize students towards the needs of the underprivileged section of the society, we, at K.R.Mangalam World School, Gurgaon took an initiative to organize a charitable drive in the school. As the saying goes, ‘We make a Living by what we get, but we make a Life by what we give”, this drive was a step to develop the spirit of empathy and compassion in the students.
To honor the school’ housekeeping staff, the ‘Shramdaan’ activity was organized. Each child actively participated by arranging a packet of biscuits. They were distributed among the workers and this generous gesture of Manglamites was appreciated by all. In addition to the above, a Contribution Drive was also organized at the school Annual Carnival, where the students were given the golden opportunity to extend a hand of friendship to those who would love to read. Old story books were contributed enthusiastically by the students of classes IV & V. These books were sold at the carnival with the aim to use the fund for charity. A group of students personally visited the Deaf and Dumb School in order to distributed the woolen socks to the destitute children.
It is often said that, “Only by giving you are able to receive more than you already have”. Continuing the trend, our students also joined the initiative of providing warm and soft sweaters to underprivileged children. Overall, it was an enlightening experience for the students and a reminder to us all that a kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal.
