UNSTOPPABLE UDGAM WINS RECOGNITION FOR USEFUL EFFORTS

Udgam School has been actively involved in all kinds of charity work and has inspired their students to help the underprivileged in whatever way they can. As a recognition for all the charity work that has been done by Udgam School over the years for the needy and the underprivileged, Yuva Unstoppable, a charity organization that works on the principle that ‘young people are not useless, they are used less’ awarded them with an award in the ‘Best Social Impact’ category in a ceremony held on February 23, 2013. 

Based on the belief that ‘A little goes a long way’ Team Udgam over the years has distributed stationery items, soft toys, sports kits and lunch boxes to underprivileged children. The school has encouraged their students to visit old age homes and orphanages where they distributed fruits, milk powder and cold cream.

They have also added a little bit of warmth to the lives of pavement dwellers by giving them blankets. The students have visited slum areas along with their teachers and distributed clothes. Students of Udgam School have visited municipal schools and taught the children simple craft making techniques.

The Udgam students have also held drives in city malls to increase awareness on voting, girl’s education and other social issues. They have conducted education rallies and ‘nukkad nataks’ with ‘Save the girl child’ as a theme. On a smaller scale the students have taught the illiterate helping staff of the school to write their names and sign.

According to the principal, Ms Radhika Iyer, “We are happy to be recognized by Yuva Unstoppable, the group that has made so much difference where it matters. The award is an incentive to our students to render social service in any form.”
