It is rightly said that one can only get to know oneself truly in the service of others. And when it comes to providing selfless service, members of Interact Club of Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, have always shone brightly. They firmly adhere to the motto of their parent club (Rotary Club of Delhi Premier) – STIR – Solidarity, Transform, Inspire and Radiate.

In line with this motto, the Interactors of Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, in collaboration with Centre for Sight, recently organised Project Netra, a free eye check-up camp for the students, parents and staff. 

The project aimed at bringing awareness among everyone about the importance of eyesight and its conservation. The prime purpose of this eye camp was to provide high volume and quality, free of cost eye care service to screen the major causes of vision impairment and provide treatment for minor ailments.

One of the prominent repercussions of the lockdown was an increase in screen time among students. Therefore, the Interactors believed that the need to have an eye check-up was the need of the hour.

The camp received an immense response from students as well as parents. Around 150 people attended the camp and availed its services. The club was able to fulfill its mission because of the untiring support of Dr. Neha Berlia, Co Promoter, and Chair Interact and Rotaract clubs. The young members of the Interact Club vowed to carry on with their altruistic endeavours in the future after the success of the eye check-up camp.
