Apeejay School, Panchsheel Park, recently organised an event in which a select group of students visited children in a nearby NGO for a fun-filled, interactive day. Abiding by the motto “United to Serve”, students of class 11, from the Interact Club of Apeejay School, organised ‘Project Illumine Lives’.

The students, along with their teacher-in-charge Moumita Mallik Sen, visited an NGO named Blessings, Haji Colony, Delhi. They interacted with the children at the NGO, from three-year-olds to adolescents, through different activities such as charades, drawing competitions and sing-along contests. They students also distributed gift hampers, stationery and chocolates.

Both the volunteers and the NGO children enjoyed the day, making the event a great success.

“Sharing is caring. It is truly heartening to see our young scholars take the initiative to share not just material things, but their time and energy with those less fortunate,” said the school’s Vice Principal Shalini Agarwal.

Nishad Hashmi, founder, Blessings, added, “There were about 70 students from our NGO who participated in the event, and learned about Apeejay and its students. The children were very happy to engage in interesting exercises. The overall experience was very good.”

She remarked, “When it comes to social work, volunteering has a major impact. One of the major issues with the disadvantaged children is lack of exposure—within an institution, they are confined to a particular environment. It is events like these that provide the much-needed link with the world outside. ‘Project Illumine Lives’ was highly motivating for the children at Blessings.”

True education is when we can teach our children the value of empathy, compassion and respect for everyone. Proud of our Interactors for walking in the path shown by our visionary Chairperson Sir and inspirational President Madam!”
