Fruits of Integrity

A sustainable drive that helps students to realize the narrow line between integrity and being honest by incorporating sustainable development goals – Goals 1,2,3,12,16 and 17. It educates the students to have a choice and to utilize that choice on how to influence a change in their world. Students deposit fruit into the integrity basket every day where the basket is open to all and anyone can purchase the fruit with an AED 1 or just take it, it’s their choice. This choice encompasses his/her judgment in doing the action.

Human Library

The Indian Academy society being aim at different sustainable drives that connect the student community with the balancing world, a unique initiative named Human Library incorporating the sustainable development goals – Goals 3, Goal 16, and 17. The drive is based on balancing the social and emotional quotient of students by making use of humans as their reference. It is a space where a student loans a teacher to share real-life stories that can relate to them to get inspired to aspire.  It will help the receiver to change the perception of judgment.
