Welcome to Ryan Schools Food Bucket Challenge !
The Ryan International Group of Institutions is socially committed to empower the student community in all spheres. Over the last several decades, the Group has undertaken several remarkable initiatives in support of needy and of Society such as adoption of orphanages, blind homes, and homes for the elderly, community outreach programs, village adoption, hygiene programs and health camps; environmental awareness drives; and the provision of relief and rehabilitation measures for disaster-affected communities.
This Food Bucket Challenge aims to mobilize over one million kilograms of food (mainly cereals like rice, wheat, jowar and foods like sugar, onions, potatoes etc.) and distribute it to various orphanages and NGO’s across the country.
This is aimed to be a nationwide program and the group hopes that in addition to its stakeholders – students, parents, staff and others, the general public will also join in to support the needy.
The program is also intended to make students sensitive to the issues around them and be alive to the situation of the less fortunate. Such activities feature regularly in Ryan schools across the country, as the group strongly focuses on inculcating the importance of social responsibility amongst the students and the stakeholders helping them develop an attitude of selfless service.
The Bible says, “You shall open wide your hand to your brother, to the needy and to the poor, in your land.”
The program was kicked off at the St Lawrence School, Kandivli East by providing a nutritious meal to 500 children from various orphanages.
Speaking on the occasion, Mrs. Grace Pinto, MD, Ryan International Group of Institutions said, “This initiative has ben started to bring to light the fact that if we work collectively, we can make a big difference to the lives of many. Through this challenge we also want to let our students become agents of change in the society bringing God’s love to the poor and needy.”
