“Every human is born to carry forward an ever-advancing civilization”, said Baha’u’llah, the Founder of Baha’I Faith. The same ideology has since long been maintained in our Vedic culture which emphasizes that “Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinah” (Let each soul be happy).
Serving people and making them happy is not just a blank ideology for us. We translate it through our acts of kindness. The aspects of Social Service Projectss are well integrated with our Junior Youth Empowerment Program (JYEP) because we believe that good knowledge is useless without good action.
The spiritual empowerment our children gain at the school campus is further implemented into active involvement with these children with special needs who require a helping hand and, above all, true love from all of us. Our students collaborate with a number of humanitarian organizations. To name a few of them, they have a good rapport with ATMA JYOTI, a hostel for visually challenged girls. LAHS children help them in many ways including writing their examination papers as these visually challenged girls cannot do so on their own.. Our students also extend a helping hand to AMAR JYOTI children who are physically challenged and ROSHNI, the rehabilitation centre for people with cerebral palsy.
LAHS students frequently visit these institutions to mix up with these boys and girls with special needs, distribute sweets and fruit, spend their quality time with them, play with them and do many things to make them feel that they are useful members of our human society who can contribute to its upliftment. These associations have created a sense of value in the hearts of these children. Many of these physically challenged children set up their stalls every year at LAHS and sell out handicrafts made by hand. This effort has improved their self-esteem and also contributed to their economic advancement.
