COS 66 had pioneered the concept of giving back to its Alma Mater by identifying specific project to be supported to insure that there is "tangibility and sustainability" in whatever small benefit we can provide. Now in 2016 we have decided to not just do the same - but pioneer an extended “give back” to society. We have been privileged to be Doscos and have our careers and future secured thanks to THE DOON SCHOOL.
"But we are a very small minority in India where tens of millions remain disadvantaged and specially the GIRL CHILD. This year is our 50th year since leaving school and while we are sure there are many years to go, perhaps our ability to contribute and give back from our earnings will decline. So This year we have as you have all learnt decided to make DSOBS and the School to become the “GIVER” and not the RECEIVER.
We believe that by DSOBS and the SCHOOL giving back for education of the GIRL CHILD, we all will receive some blessings and goodwill from the lesser fortunate and this will extend to our own kids and generations of DOSCOS after us. This website is intended to insure that COS 66 stays strong and we use use this medium to stay in touch with each other and also have information on our where abouts, our children and their names should be known to all of us and maybe they can also get inn touch and experience the great bonds of friendship we have enjoyed over there last 50 years BECAUSE OF THE 5 to 7 years we had together in School between 1960 and 1966"
