Teachers are the next level of COVID warriors, fighting for the nation and shaping the future of tomorrow. With this thought, the newly appointed Interact Club of Ramjas School, RK Puram began their journey by expressing gratitude to their teachers. The Club prepared a video for their beloved teachers. The video was presented during the virtual teachers' day celebration. The video included messages from the core team thanking their teachers for everything that they've taught them. The Club even acknowledged their parents, grandparents, and neighbors, as they also teach us important life values. The Club presented 'Care Coupons'-a coupon which states 'I care for you, thank you for your teachings!' and also a promise to help them (parents, grandparents, or neighbors) in the best way possible. They (parents, grandparents, or neighbors) can avail of this coupon anytime without any condition, just as they shower their love and guidance unconditionally.

To honor her service and keep her memory alive, her family has graciously decided to fund a scholarship for the underprivileged students from the pre-primary and junior sections of this school in the form of Tuition Fee or Books or Winter Uniforms.
