Service at TRIO

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” 
― Mahatma Gandhi

Community service programmes at TRIO teach our children to think beyond their own lives and helps them develop a well-rounded personality. We assist them to assimilate human-centric skills, knowledge and attitudes in the classroom, through which they can positively influence the lives of people beyond the school walls. Our community service programmes are designed to encourage civic responsibility and provide credible, significant service to the community. Having such a direct influence on the community at large establishes the sense that their efforts are necessary, valuable and recognized.

Community Service is given the same amount of reverence, attention and efforts as is given to other activities in school such as academics and sports. Such programmes aim to turn children into confident, compassionate and quick-thinking leaders. It also cultivates bonding, camaraderie and teamwork. Children can discover their hidden talents and experience the joys of giving.
