Grade 4 Community Service Project ‘ADAPT’

Able Disabled All People Together, ‘ADAPT’  (formerly known as The Spastics Society of India) is India’s most noted non-profit and a Non-governmental organization (NGO), working for Neuro-Muscular and Developmental Disabilities. It was started on 2 October 1972 by Mithu Alur, to provide education and treatment services for the spastics (children suffering from cerebral palsy). An important lesson in their philosophy of service and professionalism is that it is crucial to make the handicapped, however rich or poor, feel emotionally and socially strong and make India a disability friendly country. Their vision is that each one of us should reach out to people who are different, to value, respect, and celebrate diversity. Their mission is to promote the values of philanthropy and altruism in our country through schools, colleges and companies.

To support this noble cause, here is how, the students of Grade 4 conducted their Community Service project:

1. Friday, 28th August 2015

  • Sensitization talks by Ms. Reshma from 'ADAPT'. Followed by reflection from the students.

2. Monday, 31st August 2015

  • Students displayed creative posters all around the school to create awareness for their project.

3. Monday, 31st August to Thursday, 3rd September 2015

  • Announcements made at the school assemblies to spread awareness on 'ADAPT'. Students urged their peers to donate generously for the noble cause.

4. Monday, 7th September to Wednesday, 9th September 2015

  • Students on a collection drive to receive the donations, brought by their peers, for the children of the Spastic society.

Visit to the ADAPT society
Students performed a fusion dance, recited poems and sang melodious songs for the children at ADAPT. They also visited their classrooms and helped them draw and colour. As our students committed their time and effort for the children of ADAPT; happiness reflected on their beautiful faces. Finally, they donated their collection with a great sense of satisfaction and fulfilment.
