OUTREACH PROGRAMME

We know how great it feels to receive gifts, however the joy of getting is short lived. Our lives are richer when we share and that inner joy comes from helping others, to better their lives. Truly giving from heart, fills your heart with joy and nourishes the soul. Exactly why our students joined hands and took an initiative to reach out to the needy, at Dharavi- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar school children. Students taught them stencil printing, painting with acrylic colors along with playing gifts. To sum up to find yourself lose yourself in the service of others. True joy lies in the act of giving, without an expectation of receiving something in return.
