A press release has asked the SDM Alumni from around the world to come forward and register and enjoy the togetherness across batches under the umbrella of SDMites As Henry Ford said ”Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success. “This Global SDMites meet wouldn’t have been possible without the earlier executive committees of previous years coming together and laying a solid foundation for the SDM Middle east chapter, the release said.
Since its inception in 2009 the SDM Alumni Middle East Chapter has acted sticking to the values and the principles of the SDM Institution. The word ‘Dharma’ traditionally means ritual, duty, righteousness and alms and touching the lives of people with a transformational directness that is unique. Taking these values ahead in practice the alumni have not only came together for fun in a foreign land but also added value to the togetherness and always initiating support towards the various social causes and turning the wishes into reality .
The activities included supporting the social cause, honouring the teachers and more over mentoring and supporting the new SDMites who would join them in Middle East. In this short span the group has initiated mega actions from organizing the first Middle East meet to the current first Global Middle East meet in the month of November.
