A noble effort

The students of Canadian International School (CIS) have tied up with ‘Goonj’, an NGO, to help the flood ravaged state of Jammu and Kashmir.

 As Kashmir reels under the aftermath of the worst floods the state has experienced in a century, the students of CIS are doing their bit to help people in effected areas. 

By the strength of their combined efforts, the students have managed to raise supplies worth Rs 1, 50, 000 which include wheat flour, rice, lentils, soaps, mosquito coils, cookies and toiletries. The students of grade 11 whipped up a sweet treat in an effort to raise some funds.

The youngsters baked various kinds of cookies and cupcakes for the fundraiser. “I would like to thank everyone who has taken part and contributed towards the rebuilding of the lives of the victims of the Kashmir flood. I feel privileged to be an organiser of the event,” said Sharad Kiswani.

CIS is known for its charity drives that take place throughout the year. “We appreciate the students’ efforts to reach out to the needy through their generous donations. Social responsibility is a key facet that we, at Canadian International School Bangalore, seek to inspire in our students.

 The idea is to imbibe the belief that it is more blissful to give than to receive. It’s really inspiring to see students stand up and celebrate as a community with many acts of giving. Over the years, community service has become engrained in our school's ethos and we take pride in this,” said Shweta Sastri, the executive director of the school.
