Upcoming Initiatives

LETTERS OF HOPE - WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY 2020

The Letters of Hope campaign was designed as an effort to make a contribution and participate in World Suicide Prevention Day, observed on the 10th of September. Suicide is a complex issue and one that has a profound effect not just on the person but on their family too. Hence, it is important that we come together to make a contribution towards this cause no matter how small it may be. With this in mind, the students of The Aditya Birla Integrated School collaborated with Mpower to reach out to their peers in schools across the country to send in their letters of hope. In less than a month, we received close to 200 letters from students in 21 schools, across 13 cities.
