Pathways Gurgaon students repair road to end villager’s misery

Enthused with the spirit of service, as many as 35 students of Pathways School Gurgaon joined hands with the Earth Saviours Foundation to end the woes of Bandhwari villagers by paving the road, which has been in a dilapidated state from many years now and is a cause of major discomfort to them, especially the elderly and the sick.

 

To contribute their precious little, the students took the initiative to help repair the road. They started by removing rocks from the coarse path and sprinkling water over the cleared ground to smoothen the road. The children were filled with enthusiasm and did not hold back their efforts even after they were ankle-deep in cement, as they levelled the road.

In no time, the road was patched up and the students remained relentless, perfecting the rocky crevices and continuously bringing more batches of cement for the other workers to use.

 

It was a fascinating lifetime experience for the students, as they felt very proud to do something constructive for the community. The villagers in turn were extremely happy and lauded the students for their efforts.

This road mending will benefit the life of about 2300 villagers of Bandhwari. After repairing the road, the students visited the office of the Earth Saviours Foundation where they were presented with trophies and certificates.

Swachh Paryavaran Walk

On Sunday, 19th February, early morning, a group of 100 plus students of Pathways World School Aravali joined hands together, along with a score of faculty members to join in the PHDCCI (PHD Chamber of Commerce & Industry) sponsored Swachh Paryavaran Walk.

We left, after a slight delay, owing to traffic obstructions, for the venue.

The early morning quiet was regularly interrupted by the healthy laughter and the high spirits of the students on the buses.  This was quite unusual from other trips where early morning gets us only the buzz of the occasional snore!!!IMG-20170220-WA0006

Arriving at the venue, Rajpath looked glorious as ever and the distant India Gate, covered partly in haze looked to be a plausible destination. Right through the journey, we had changed into the attire for the performances, donning the caps, t-shirts and the scarves and the badges.   _MG_3847

The Guest of Honour, Col. Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore, Minister of State for Information & Broadcasting was welcomed by the members of the PHDCCI Governing Body. He addressed the assembled students and adults and encouraged them to work towards a clean, green environment and to assume responsibility as the future citizens of this planet.

He then flagged off the walk and witnessed the tableaus and performances of various schools.

Pathways Aravali was one of the key presenters in this section and a select group of enthused performers got the crowd standing still with their performance on the prestigious Rajpath.IMG_20170219_075645986

With a myriad range of experiences shared by young adults all across the spectrum, we reached the India Gate, walking and performing to the audiences and crowds who had gathered there from far and wide to join in this mission of a cleaner environment.
