As part of CAS, we the students of IBDP went to visit a Government school under the scheme of Akshaya Patra on the 17th of July. Akshaya Patra is a non-profit organization, which supplies mid-day meals for various government schools throughout India. During our visit there, we created awareness among the children of the school about health and the importance of having a balanced diet. Additionally, we played games with them and served them lunch.
We also donated books and stationary to all the children before we left. It was a great experience to interact and spend time with them. This visit helped us understand how privileged we are and made us realize that we should be giving back to our society as well.
