Compassion towards the underprivileged is an essential virtue for every human being. Acts of charity not only help people in need but it also makes us feel good! The importance of charity should be passed onto our young generation and make this world a better place.

Encouraging the spirit of giving Dar Al Salam Group of Schools, comprising of Indian Central School, Aspire Indian International School, Pakistan English School and Aspire Bilingual School established an annual CSR initiative, DAS Cares through which students, supported by Management, parents, teachers and non-teaching staff, are taught the value of charity, encouraging them to grow up with a healthy sense of compassion and sharing with others less fortunate.

Students were encouraged to contribute unused household items, grocery, stationery, household medical supplies and handy gadgets towards the initiative which they distributed to deserving and hardworking community workers.

Around 160 kits were distributed in events organized at multiple locations across three of the four school campuses on 10th, 11th and 18th May. Each event commenced with the recitation of soulful poetry themed ‘The Spirit of Giving’ by students. Handmade gratitude cards were also placed in each of the kits as an appreciation of the efforts toward beneficiaries such as construction workers, labour and domestic workers.
