Lahore: A group of sociology students from the Beaconhouse AIT Senior Campus, accompanied by teacher Ms Soomaira Naseem, went on a trip to a senior citizens home, called ‘Happy Home’, on October 10, 2017. The students presented gifts to the senior citizens residing there, spent time with them and interviewed them about their lives. They also used different research methods to find out how various NGOs are working to fulfil the needs of the people in distress. This community service helped the participants gain insight into the hardships faced by the senior citizens and helped them see life from a different perspective. They learned to treat elderly people with dignity and to be sensitive to their needs.
