Today’s students are leaders of tomorrow. It is our duty to prepare the students as compassionate and empathetic global citizens by helping them experience the real world and engaging with the wider community both inside and outside the School. Through our humble efforts, we try to build bridges between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots.’
Through this process, the students become aware of the needs and issues affecting our local and international communities. They learn about the ways in which communities respond and deal with social issues such as access to education, health care, gender parity and development.
The girls are actively engaged with an Anganwadi just behind the School, where they interact with the students and prepare them for various events like Sports Day, Children’s Day and many other festivals. We also contribute towards ‘GOONJ’, an NGO which uses the underutilized and excess urban household material as a tool for rural development. UWS students visit the primary school , ‘Arthur Foot Academy’ for children in one of the most backward, rural villages in India, called Bhandarjhud, and stay there for a couple of days engaging themselves with local children. The girls interact with the village community to gain a better perspective about the living conditions prevailing there. Through various activities, innovative and creative ways, they add value to the lives of these underprivileged children.
