“Good deeds should be done with intention, not for attention.”
Being the centre of excellence for creativity and innovation from last 23 years, Pearl Academy has been helping the students to achieve their desired goals and success in their respective careers. But there’s more to Pearl as a brand than what meets the eye, the academy infuses a sense of social well being in its students so that they can also address the needs of the society and be sensitive towards the current social issues.
Recently, Pearl Academy Noida students got a chance to be a part of initiatives which were aimed at contributing something meaningful to the people in need and society at large. Pearl Academy’s PlanClan Music Society (Coordinated by SDS and PlanClan) paid a visit to the Indian Islamic Center to support an NGO ‘Touching Souls’ on 20th Sept.
The event was really inspiring and very interesting for all the members of the music society. where our Students Tushar, Shivam, Vikas, Vatsala, Suashant performed with their group. The main objective behind the event was to help the underprivileged kids, especially the 4 year old “Pradeep” who was born without ears. The event was especially focused to raise funds to get his ears transplant.
Students also met Denero Ash , an International Musician who plays set of drums with his fingers and palm. Ash inspired all of our students and they learnt a lot from him. The event ended on a high note with a rocking jam session that featured the kids from the NGO and Denero Ash himself.
Another project ‘ATTENTION! HUNGER’, was initiated by Sarah Mirza, student of Communication Design Level 2 under the guidance of Shilpi Burman.
According to the stats, 2.6 million children die of hunger every year, that is, a child every 12 seconds. This is in itself a huge concern for a big country like India. ATTENTION! HUNGER project is one such effort by the Communication Design team and PlanClan to provide meals to the under-served communities or the needy people, at least once a month. Robin hood Army, an organisation dedicated to collect excessive food and feed those who are in need helped the students to distribute food amongst the poor.
80 Lunch boxes donated by students,staff and faculty in this pilot project. The Robinhood Army collected and distributed them to the hungry underprivileged kids. The entire team of Noida campus showed great enthusiasm and willingness to lend support for this social cause making it a huge success.
Such initiatives prove to be the guiding light for our students and faculty, as it may not get them a lot of fame but it will certainly go a long way in ensuring social well-being and make Pearlites socially responsible citizens.
