On Friday, 11th December 2015, 42 students of Class VI visited Jeevan Jyoti Ashram, Jangpura, a home for orphans taken care by Sisters of Missionaries Of Charity. They took cardigans, pairs of socks, moisturizers and a small contribution for the children of Snehalaya, which is looked after by our dear Sisters.The Jeevan Jyoti Ashram caters to the needs of around 50 children who are physically or mentally challenged. This visit was an eye opener for both the students as well as the teachers who had accompanied them. They not only understood the importance of families but also realized that how blessed they are.
On Tuesday, 15th December 2015, almost 40 students of Standard IX visited Mother Teresa’s Devine Foundation. This is a home to about 100 mentally challenged people. The residents had tried their hands on some astonishing craft work out of waste material to decorate their home.
The students had contributed for cardigans, towels, bathing soaps and some packets of biscuits for the residents of this Home. They also presented a beautiful programme comprising of songs, mime and dance etc. Superior and their Class teachers accompanied the children for the cause.
This trip brought the students face to face with the reality of life and that happiness can be attained by extending a helping hand.
