      ‘Giving’ can make a difference to others and in turn we achieve a sense of empowerment, pride, and accomplishment.

      The Xavierians were truly empowered and gained a sense of accomplishment by their visit to Robin Hood Army NGO and slum clusters in the vicinity of the school with the respected Director Sir.

      With the aim to invoke service in the mind of students, and enable them to experience generosity, kindness, helpfulness, unselfishness, sacrifice, giving, service, love etc which are important aspects of humanity, students from the School Council got an opportunity to visit NGOs.

      Stationery and packed food items were generously donated by Xavierians during the ‘Joy of Giving Week’. The happiness that one gets by making others happy is priceless, which was evident on the faces of all the children who donated something.

      The things collected were distributed among the not so fortunate people residing near the school in slum clusters from 17th January – 23rd January, 2020. The students also undertook the act of kindness with immense passion and enthusiasm. The positive energy and feel good factor was quite evident on the faces of Xavierians, gaiety and love also ushered in from the young children of the NGOs.

      Counseling of the parents residing in these slum clusters was also undertaken by the respected Director Sir. They were made aware about the need of education and were encouraged to educate their children.

      Xavier’s Inclination towards social responsibility and to propagate education was rightly achieved by this small act of kindness, ultimately encouraging the culture of giving among its students.
