Ernst & Young's volunteers spent a day at HOPE School!

HOPE’s journey so far has been really incredible. It has grown from a band of street volunteers to a huge national network of schools, hospitals and vocational centers and during the journey, HOPE has continuously been getting support from all sectors and all ages of people.

Correspondingly, Ernst & Young’s employees and trainees ran a program at HOPE School to interact with the underprivileged children studying there. It was a fascinating initiative taken by Ernst & Young to break down the class barrier and engage the children in different activities with them.

Career counseling session was also a part of the program for grade 10 students. The program was head by Senior Associate HR, Ms Noreen Irshad. All the classes were equally assigned to all the trainees present there, who held interactive sessions in the classrooms with fun-filled activities. Some of the trainees also did face and hand painting which delighted the kids. Lunch boxes were also distributed to the students.

It created a friendly atmosphere in the school and students immensely enjoyed all the activities. This idea was to make the underprivileged children realize that they are not neglected, in fact, they are just like us and can excel in life if an enduring and pervasive value system is provided to them.
