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:

* Wednesday, 31st August 2016
Grade 4 students made announcement about their community service programme at the Middle School Assembly. Thereafter, the students put posters around the school to create awareness about the programme.

* Friday, 2nd September 2016
Grade 4 students made announcement on the school P.A. system.

*Wednesday, 7th September 2016
Students made announcement in the Junior School Assembly.

* Thursday, 8th September 2016
Talk on 'Accessibility for People with Special Needs' was given by Ms. Maneeta Sawhney and Ms. Manju; volunteers from the ADAPT NGO.

* Friday, 9th September 2016
Grade 4 students visited ADAPT. They performed songs such as 'Wake me up' and 'Achutam Keshavam' for the young children at ADAPT. The children at ADAPT responded by singing Nursery rhymes. Thereafter, the students of our school visited their classrooms and interacted with the children over a drawing and colouring activity session. Students felt a sense of happiness in giving the goodies that they had enthusiastically taken for the children at ADAPT.
