Community Outreach Programme At JKPS
"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill
Reaching out to all members of society, sharing their concerns and caring for them is an essential part of the Jaspalian Education. By working for the underprivileged through community connect and welfare programmes we not only pay our debt to society but enrich our own lives. The Community Connect Project is a continuous program of JKPS. The school has implemented the program with the twin objectives of meeting the School's commitment to the society at large and to inspire its students to engage in social activities and to instill in them the qualities of care, compassion and empathy. Through the project, the school, complete with its staff and students, embrace the responsibility towards the community and environment (both ecological and social) in which it operates. We endeavor to make a positive contribution to the underprivileged communities by supporting a wide range of socio-economic, educational and health initiatives. A wide range of activities are covered in the project such as conducting contribution drives, providing assistance during times of disaster, encouraging volunteering work, supporting worthy social causes, and working in partnership with civil society organisations (CSOs) and NGOs to widen the reach and leverage individual experience and expertise.
Humble contribution of books to GOONJ
Education is the most powerful catalyst for social transformation. It is important for children because they are the pillars of the nation and the future of the world. Children build the nation with their knowledge & education.
At Jaspal Kaur Public School, we believe in comprehensive education. We Jaspalians have devised several ways that help us share the gift of education with the underprivileged children. The Jaspalians donated 2500 specimen books to Goonj, an NGO, on 23 November 2020. This would benefit many children who are unable to purchase books or are unable to study online.
Educational charity makes learning possible for everybody. We are indebted to our supporters and donors who have helped us touch the lives of many and have been a helping hand to them in their times of need. It is an effort that will bring smiles to the faces of many children in these times of COVID 19.
"Happiness doesn't result from what we get, but from what we give." JKPS has always believed in helping the needy through its community outreach program. To reach out to common man JKPS has been a part of the Langer Sewa where our school children along with the teachers help out the society in contributing food for the needy since years. To carry out its tradition, JKPS once again in the month of March, 2020 extended its helping hand to the needy by felicitating with dry ration for the Langar sewa. We, at JKPS believe in serving the humankind by their good deeds and ethos.
Walk For Life- Stride Against Cancer

Nirmal sewa is a non-profit organization that provides education to children that cannot afford education. The significance of this school lies in the fact that besides providing the necessary education, they also provide the students with the normal everyday utilities that a private school would expect the students to be getting at home. Some of these utilities are a stitching club and a mid-day meal. We visited different rooms of the school and they actually depicted that how at first the school had difficulty in collecting children from the slums and was now at waiting for 200 children. The students in this school are mostly the children of convicts in Tihar jail and balloon sellers. We took grocery items for the school which we hope would support it. Last but not the least, the cleanliness was remarkable. It was a memorable visit which reaffirmed the fact that service to humanity is the greatest service one can offer and we should join our hands towards this aim.

Our team visited different wards in the Sadan and met various patients and staff. A donation of toiletries and muffins which had been collected from our school students and staff for community service was made for the needy. We were overwhelmed to see the dedication and spirit of service with which the staff took care of the patients who lose their last hope of survival. Cleanliness too was, remarkable. It was an memorable visit which reaffirmed the fact that service to humanity is the greatest service one can offer and we should join our hands towards this aim.
