Joy of Giving - 2022

“If nature has made you for a giver, your hands are born open, and so is your heart; and though there may be times when your hands are empty, your heart is always full.” Frances Hodgson Burnett It’s not how much we give, but how much love we put into giving. – Mother Teresa The main idea of the special feature ‘Joy of Giving’ is to create awareness among the students related to environmental problems. The students understood that we have been nurtured by the resources available on the Earth. Hence, it is really important for us to ‘Give back to Earth’, the kindness and generosity we have received from her.

The students understood that they have to think and act carefully which will help them avoid causing further damage to our planet. The students are able to identify and differentiate between actions that have positive and negative impact on the environment. The main purpose of the module ‘Joy of Giving’ was to make the students aware of the environmental problems that are taking place around the world. The activities planned for this feature have encouraged them to give back to the environment by creating awareness and implementing eco-friendly actions in their respective societies and communities. The students were exposed to different eco-friendly actions like planting trees, composting, managing wastes and so on, that are practiced by different communities and people around the world. With the help of this exposure, the students made a proposal to implement the eco-friendly actions in their respective societies and communities. Through this proposal, they also created awareness about the urge to adopt eco-friendly ways of living and the need to save our nature. Thus, this session enabled the students to think of ways to ‘Give back to the environment’ by creating awareness and implementing eco-friendly actions in their societies and communities.

The main idea for doing ‘Joy of Giving’ was to explore the ideas around ‘Climate Change’ and to think about ‘taking actions’ that could address the current crisis that our environment is facing. The students knew about the causes that lead to ‘Climate Change’ and understood its far reaching impacts on the planet. They learned to calculate their own carbon footprints which made them aware of the toll on the environment due to their actions. The students had brainstorming sessions and came up with strategies or actions that they can incorporate in their daily lives to reduce their carbon footprints. This helped the students to address the current environmental crisis of drastic ‘Climate Change’.It was indeed the greatest learning for all the students and teachers as well. The celebration of “Joy of Giving” did give us a heart full of gratitude and to give back to our mother earth.
