During the visit, the students found the opportunity to learn about how the village functions and develop their empathy and socialising skills. Furthermore, based on their own drives, the Near East College students made a decision of which they informed their teachers to fund a year’s educational expenses of a child who resides at the SOS Children’s Village. In fact, the students also expressed that they wished to reach out to masses of people to encourage them to pick up on their social responsibilities.

    It is essential for each and every individual to develop a sense and responsibility of Social Responsibility…
    The Near East College Social Responsibility Club teachers made a statement regarding the matter and have expressed that in a way, social responsibility was acting sensitively together for the benefit of the society. They also emphasised that it is the duty of every individual to learn to respond to cultural, social, economic and environmental issues and needs; and learn to act as an individual, or within a group in an ethical way.
