ASB Sukhumvit campus middle school students visited the Mercy Centre on Tuesday, October 9th 2018. The Mercy Centre is situated in Klong Toey area, and it is a 40-year-old foundation that helps communities by building schools, improving family health and welfare, protecting street children’s rights, and giving shelter to orphans.
Our students and teachers went to one of Mercy’s preschools for some interactive learning activities, and to get the children’s wish list for Christmas. Reaching out to these kids is a necessary exposure that allows students to develop a sense of generosity and empathy, and it teaches them to appreciate what they have and the people around them. This kind of community service can also ignite in them interest and passion towards greater charity and humanitarianism. Altruism, after all, produces happy and empowered children.
We, as an institution, can then fulfill the responsibility towards the holistic growth of our students.
