An interact club initiative – Book collection drive conducted during summer break, Mehak Singhal,

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” In today’s fast moving world, it is easy to forget the importance of education and its necessity for growth as a community. With this aim in mind, the Interact club students of Pathways School, Noida, therefore collaborated together and organized a book drive at school for the less privileged students of an IB school that we support in the city of Bhopal by the name “Eastern Public School”.
The students of this school mostly come from the less privileged sections of society and follow the IB curriculum. They are very keen learners and are being supported in their educational pursuit through grants received from donors. Every year, we students at Pathways Noida do our part in supporting their educational endeavors and do so by requesting students from the pass out batches to liberally donate their used IB and IG books to these students.
Our outgoing batch of students of 2015, more than willingly supported this cause and we managed to collect one big carton of used books which were finally dispatched to Bhopal in the last week of July’15. 
All our outgoing students were delighted to have this opportunity to help  as a part of the CAS initiative. We wish to thank all our outgoing students for their support and also commend the efforts of the Interact Club members who worked through the summer vacations collecting books from student’s houses.
