The cause of service to the community has always brought our boys and girls to the forefront, collecting enormous amounts for the Red Cross, or some Ramkrishna Mission village reconstruction project, or for the victims of Orissa flood, Gujarat earthquake, the Kargil war, the Tsunami, or, for one of their own school-mates, whose fight with death on the hospital bed is costing his parent’s fortune. It was indeed a life-time’s experience to have Mother Teresa visiting NAVA NALANDA on the 1st February, 1993 and personally acknowledging the truck-loads of Christmas gifts sent every year from the school to the orphans under the Mother’s care.A special social service programme was organized on 21st August, 2007, with huge donations from the students and teachers being given to 1. Missionaries of Charity, 2.Voice of the world, 3.Red Cross Society, 4.Bharat Sevasram, 5.Thakurpukur cancer institute.
