"The greatest good you can do for another is not just sharing your riches, but reveal to them their own.”
Award participants from Bawa Lalvani Public School, Kapurthala visited and offered their services at the Kusht Ashram (Leprosy Home) in Kapurthala. Below is a report from Ms Ekta Dhawan, Principal, Bawa Lalvani Public School, Kapurthala.
Award participants of Bawa Lalvani Public School, through their Award routine at school, are committed to serving society. The BLPS Award volunteers remain on their toes to work towards the noble cause of community service, i.e., lending a helping hand to leprosy patients. In this Academic Year session 2017-2018, the team adopted "Kusht Ashram" (Leprosy Home).
The Bronze and Silver Award participants have been assigned a facility in the Kusht Ashram and each student is individually responsible for the upkeep of the earmarked space.
The participants have made it their mission to cater to the well being of the residents of the Ashram; this is an endeavour to make them feel a part of the general population and 'wanted' in society.
The official caretaker at the Khusht Ashram, Shri Keshav Pandit, informed the IAYP Team that the residents being cared for come from within India and also from Nepal and Bhutan. This effort has brought about a sense of maturity and compassion and, further, has had a very positive effect on the personality of the participating students.
