As part of the Amritam Project, students of standard XI, along with Rajendra Swami, our Principal Dhanya Ma’am, four teachers and the school bhajan group, visited Gandhi Bhavan, a charitable trust for the poor and the destitute at Pathanapuram on June 30th. The Chairman of Gandhi Bhavan, Dr. Punalur Somarajan and the inmates received the student team warmly. The inmates included people of all age groups, from abandoned infants to the aged. Our Principal and Rajendra Swami handed over 120 kg of rice, 25 kg of pulses, biscuits, soaps, tooth-paste, clothes, etc. that were collected from the students to the co-ordinator of Gandhi Bhavan.
Our students also gave their lunch packets to the inmates. The children were given the opportunity to see for themselves and understand the lives of those who are less fortunate than them. Our school bhajan group sang bhajans for the inmates.
