Beyond the Classroom: Students from ISC-Manama Embrace Generosity and Community Spirit in Ramadan

Community work has always been an integral part of ISC-Manama’s values, driving their students to be at the forefront of initiatives that involve giving back to the community. Acknowledging the important role that community work has in building a more positive, productive, and flourishing community, various community events are organised throughout the year.

The Holy month of Ramadan is auspicious and an ideal time to give back to the community. At ISC-Manama, students join nationwide efforts to extend a helping hand to the less fortunate during this holy month, fostering a sense of belonging and unity by helping families with financial and social disparities and making a positive difference in their lives.

Ahead of Ramadan, students raise money to prepare boxes of essential food items to be distributed to families in need during the Holy month. Each student sponsors one box per family, whereby students themselves get involved in bulk purchases of these items, preparation, packaging, and labelling. The school, in collaboration with the Royal Humanitarian Foundation, arranges for these boxes to be transported and handed to the families personally by the students.

In addition to the food drive initiative, both students and staff contribute to the community by fulfilling an orphan’s dream through the Royal Humanitarian Foundation’s initiative. Such dreams involve furnishing an orphan’s room, where ISC-Manama students not only sponsor but also purchase, assemble, and furnish the orphan’s room themselves.

At ISC-Manama, community work is much more than an act of charity; it is a journey to welding the community closer together, making it more resilient and united.
