There were total 20 family houses for all the children.In each house there are 8 to 10 children and there’s a mother who take care of them like a real mother. The SOS Children’s Village was founded by Dr. Harman Minor. It was first founded in Austria and then in Greenfields (FATHIABAD) India. After Second World War many kids lost their parents. So, Dr. Harman Minor was the one who gathered all the children in one house and his sister took care of all of them.Dr. Harman Minor’s sister was the first mother of the SOS Children’s Village. The children who did not have parental care are sent to this place for a long term care.The mothers take care of children till 25 years and then the SOS Children’s Village arrange for their marriage also. They provide all the children with the best educaton and financial support also. Though, they didn’t have real parents but there not a single child sad there! Everyone had a sweet smile on their face! That was the most heart touching moment!! It was indeed a learning experience for the students.

Students, guided by the teachers, also participated in a tree plantation programme in Manapparai. Our students participated in various sports activities too with the children of the Cornerstone Home.

The students also visited a fish processing unit in Colachel where they interacted with the localities on their sundry routines.

The excursion was a mind altering experience for our students where they not only realised their social responsibility as privileged citizens of the society, but were also exposed to a culture entirely different from their own. In addition, the hospitality of the people and the serenity of the place made the excursion totally worth remembering.

Blessed are those who have the elderly with them”, goes an old saying.

To sensitise the children of today to develop empathy towards this neglected segment of society St. Mark’s Girls Senior Secondary School, Meerabagh organized a visit to an Old Age Home, Nirmal Hriday. A group of 25 students of class V along with two teachers visited the above mentioned Old Age Home on 10 March 2015, Tuesday. For the students and teachers it was a heart wrenching experience to find the elderly who once were the care taker of several lives and a support system for their families, today in their adverse times were left to fend for themselves at the mercy of an NGO.

The students were taken around the premises of the organization where they got to acquaint themselves with the whereabouts of the Old Age Home. They visited all the rooms which comprised of the common Dining Area, Prayer Room, the Dormitory and the Recreation Area.

Students participated in an interactive session with the residents of the Old Age Home. The recreational time was thoroughly enjoyed by the students as well as the residents. They had quality time singing devotional songs, playing jenga locks and sharing each other’s experiences. The entire endeavor all together become a holistic experience for all when the students distributed among them certain daily utility items like flour, hand washes, detergents, biscuits, soaps, etc. They were showered with blessings of a better future.

The students came back from the Old Age Home a little more sensitive, a little more empathetic, a little more concerned and aware about this social stigma prevailing in our society which terms the elderly as an outcast who are simply ousted from the lives of their loved ones because they have become old.

Hence the visit really made the students realise and relate to this viciously horrible side of our so called civilized society. These students became aware of the needs of these elderly people and finally made a decision to strive hard to uplift this class of society.

Goonj has been talking about Winters as an annual disaster for people who don’t have enough to cover. They firmly believe that 'Cold doesn't kill people, lack of clothing does'.

They have initiated the ‘ओढ़ा दो ज़िनदगी ' ( Odha Do Zindagi ) campaign in creating awareness on the issue and giving blankets and woolens. They reach out these to people on city roads but more urgently to the villages, with dignity, as people work for their own community issues and get the same.

With this concern in mind, students and teachers of St. Mark’s Girls Sr. Sec. School joined the 'Odha Do Zindagi' campaign with Goonj and donated clothes generously for people who don’t have enough to cover.

No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure. It is our endeavour to nurture the young saplings who never got the opportunity to learn about the world of words. Keeping this in mind, our school has initiated Project UDAAN in which basic education is being provided to the underprivileged children of the society. The children who never got the opportunity to study in a school are covered under this project. Giving wings to their imagination, some teachers and students of St Mark’s Girls Sr Sec School are teaching the children of Jwalapuri Camp No. 5 who are in the age group of 6-13 years. It is an ongoing project through which we hope to make a change in the life of these children.
