Amid the challenges posed by the novel coronavirus pandemic, businesses, governments, and civil society organisations are battling to save lives and support families. During such unfortunate circumstances, the role of NGOs has become paramount in combating COVID-19 and its impact on societys most vulnerable populations. To assist the underprivileged, DPS STS School Dhaka, Community Club has initiated Project Rong to make a difference in these tiring times of pandemic.
On this occasion, Dr. Shivananda CS, Principal, DPS STS School Dhaka, said, During these unprecedented times, it is our responsibility to support the community at our fullest potential. Hence, the DPS STS Community Club decided to initiate Project Rong to liberate childrens creativity through pencil and paper. We believe that helping organizations and supporting vulnerable populations in the wake of the pandemic is of utmost importance.
Under the project, unused paints, colours, crayons, and other stationery items were collected from people by the volunteers. The school then distributed three big cartons of these stationeries to Families for Children (FFC), a non-profit organization that fulfils the needs of homeless children and specially-abled young adults. After the stationeries were handed out at the orphanage, the children expressed gratitude with heart-warming smiles and handmade cards.
Now, more than one hundred children of FFC can make use of the stationeries for their educational purposes. Moreover, accumulating unexploited stationery items for reuse also effectively reduces wastage. The members of the Community Club will keep dedicating themselves to community service to extend their support for the betterment of the less fortunate populations.
