HOPE an educational NGO, has been celebrating global dignity day since a few years now. It is usually celebrated on the third Wednesday of October. Global Dignity Day is an initiative to educate and inspire young people and help them understand their self-worth and goals. It was established in 2008 and continues to grow in popularity.
In the light of this theme, Students of Beaconhouse School P.E.C.H.S campus, prepared skits and sung melodious songs embodying what dignity meant to them. The students were encouraged through a speech given by the principle to stand up for their rights and understand their self-esteem.
The Beaconhouse school management invited HOPE’s school children along with their principal, Ms. Aisha Noorani as a guest speaker to discourse on the philanthropic work of HOPE- an NGO in Pakistan under the leadership of Dr.Mubina Agboatwalla-child specialist in Karachi.
Towards the end of this joyful event, all the students present at the occasion were distributed lunch boxes and were made to interact with each other by participating in activities such as artwork, working in computer labs and playing games.
All in all the students were elated to have experienced a day such as “Global Dignity Day” where they learned about dignity and all that that entails: self-respect, ambition, hard work, a feeling of accomplishment.
At the end of the day students gathered for a round of storytelling and gift distribution which was a cherry on the top for these ecstatic students.
