Project Saksham

“Disabilities are yet another manifestation of global diversity. Let us be committed to the fundamental principles of dignity and equality for all human beings.”

As advocated by Guru Rabindranath Tagore, the school strongly believes in equality in society and dignity of each individual . In keeping with this belief, a new social project has been initiated this year to sensitise the students regarding individuals with intellectual disabilities and how to enable and empower them to get their due respect and right place in society.

On 10th May ‘2018, a discussion was held in the school by the ten initial members of ‘The Youth Activation Committee’, now called ‘Team Saksham’. The team Saksham, comprising of students of class IX, not only interacted with the students with intellectual disabilities, but also had a meeting with the members of the Special Olympics Bharat team, under the stewardship of Ms. Uma Chopra (TGT Hindi) and Ms. Vedica Saxena (Project Director). Our school students suggested some unified sports and other activities, to be especially organised by the school .

Team Saksham firmly believes in Supporting, Valuing and Advocating Inclusion.

Teacher -in-charge: Ms. Uma Chopra & Ms. Vedica Saxena
