Fund raising for the victims of Nepal earthquake

The earthquake in Nepal, April – May 2015, sent shockwaves in the international community and assistance poured into the hilly country from all over the globe. While the financial aid poured in, the Primary school students of Pathways World School, Aravali, also undertook fund raising activities for the victims. They held stalls selling Orange Tang, Iced-Tea and cupcakes in a shopping mall and their residential societies.

A shining example of benevolence and internationalism, the funds collected have helped in construction of classrooms in Nepal where children can go to school yet again.

Abbhinav Shriram, Chehak Sehdev, Aishwarya Sehdev, Ruhani Rathi, Ashrey Jain, Ujjwala Singh & Shaurya Jain were bestowed with CIS International Students awards 2015 for this same project.
