Project ‘Sacrifice a Packet of Chips’
Greater Noida, Oct. 12, 2016: Seeing the joy and gratitude on the faces of the recipients when they were given new shoes, the next project undertaken was ‘Sacrifice One Packet of Chips’ to procure winter clothes for the under-privileged children. Parents were advised not to send the money from their side; instead they were asked to send the value of one packet of chips only when their child willingly sacrificed eating the same for the benefit of those in need. Blankets were distributed to those in need. This made the students realize the benefit of collective work and enabled them to be sensitive to those in need.
