“Moving from humiliation and exclusion to participation: Ending poverty in all its forms "That was the theme of the poverty eradication campaign held at all Roots IVY schools.
Roots School System takes this opportunity to raise awareness of their ground-breaking approaches and relentless commitment to creating a more just knowledge about a prosperous world for all. The purpose to celebrate this day was to create awareness regarding poverty and to eradicate poverty and destitution worldwide. In order to express commonality and solidarity with the poor, students observed International Day for the Eradication of Poverty in full spirit against the sufferers. The school assembly started with a read out speech on the state of poverty in the world and in Pakistan and how we can end poverty. During the assembly all teachers and students jointly stood up for a minute and the pledge was read out to them.
Students were given chance to stand up and speak out about their views, reviews, suggestions or anything they feel should be conveyed regarding poverty. The students expressed their views in really striking terms, as their expressions were in actual fact depicting the horrors of poverty.
