“You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.”
Interact Club of IPWS, recently organised a "Winter Clothes Donation Drive" in collaboration with Hindustan Times. Our students generously contributed the woollens for the impoverished and the lesser children of God.
The mere thought of helping others in need, especially in winter season made them do so.

And proved the adage "It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving."
Green Ambassadors of Indraprastha at Work

The students nurtured these saplings for five months at home and finally planted them in the open field and contributed towards the environment. The drive was enjoyed by all the students. They also met Swami Prem Parivartan, fondly known as Peepal Baba, who has dedicated his life to trees and works relentlessly to increase the green cover of the country. It was a great learning experience for all the students as they were sensitized towards their environment.
A Noble Initiative to Rebuild Kerala
“True charity is the desire to be useful to others with no thought of recompense.”
We, at Indraprastha strongly believe that the power of human empathy, leading to collective action, saves lives. Inculcating the values of generosity, sharing, kindness, self righteousness, humility, generosity and being sensitive towards the community are our prime concern.
Keeping in sync with the same, the students were deeply moved by the catastrophe which took place due to unprecedented floods resulting into the substantial loss of life and resources. Our students took the initiative to help the state and the victims to get back to normal by collecting a handsome amount of Rs 5 Lakhs for them. The funds were transferred to the Chief Minister’s Kerala Relief Fund. With this hope that this generous contribution for the cause of our flood affected brethren of Kerala would greatly matter as each drop of water matters for the ocean.
A Ray of Hope for the Blind
Indraprastha World School in association with the St Cedd’s School (U.K.) raised an amount of Rs 33,400/- as development fund for the blind school. It was the result of the joint efforts of the teachers and the students of both the school.
The students created interesting objects out of the recyclable waste material and put up an attractive exhibition of the same to generate the money.
The parents as well as the teachers were invited to please themselves with the purchase of these recyclable materials while helping for the noble cause. The school was able to sensitize the students as well as their families towards the idea of benevolence.
Indeed, it was a small step towards a large goal of serving the mankind with a human touch.
