ASB School Stories

Located in the heart of Mumbai, India, the American School of Bombay is a coeducational, independent, IB day school from Pre-K to Grade 12.

Community and Social Responsibility

All students at ASB engage in CSR (Community and Social Responsibility) programs. Service to others is embedded in our Mission statement, and we expect all our students to actively enhance the lives while at school and after they graduate.

The purpose of our CSR program is to provide students with on-going opportunities to:

  • Become aware of the social and environmental challenges that exist in Mumbai (and India)
  • To serve the needs of others in our communities
  • To reflect and learn from those experiences

Every student from elementary, middle, and high school participates in CSR activities throughout the year. 

India offers many rich opportunities for students to focus on and meet the needs of others. ASB has developed relationships with a number of Non-Government Organizations (NGOs), to facilitate student work in this area. Our CSR participants are committed to nurturing relationships within our school, Mumbai, and internationally. Through these relationships, we build mutual trust and respect and work together to enhance each other’s lives. The program leads to many powerful experiences for the students of ASB.
