The International School of Hyderabad (ISH) understands that education does not begin or end in the classroom. Accordingly, ISH is dedicated to having its students engage in a variety of extra-curricular activities that foster Creativity, Action, and Service (CAS). To help ensure the CAS Programme’s success, the school has a CAS Coordinator and also a CAS Committee of Students.
Service is an especially important element of the CAS Programme. India continues to face serious problems educating children, especially those who are from poor families. Although India has made remarkable progress in technology and in many other fields, most children continue to live in poverty and to have little access to quality schools.
ISH has partnered with two extraordinary non-profit schools: the ICRISAT Association of Community Development (IACD) and the Amboth Tanda School. The lives we change are not only those of the students we serve at those schools. Through service, we improve ourselves.
The IACD is located on the ICRISAT campus, 5 minutes from ISH. The IACD serves young people in the villages around ICRISAT and provides them valuable skills in computing, English, sewing, and socialization.
The Amboth Tanda School is located about 60 miles south of ISH. Read about the HATI project here.
Amboth Tanda serves mostly children who are members of the Lambada tribe. ISH is now launching a new dimension of its partnership with Amboth Tanda: Help a Child. Help a Child gives members of the ISH community the opportunity to help a student go to school.
