The Social Outreach Initiative held on Saturday, the 21st of February 2015 at Mahavir Nivasi Matimand Vidyalay, in collaboration with Barclays, marked another success for Mitr – A Friend Indeed. The volunteer team included 5 representatives of Mitr – A Friend Indeed and 28 very enthusiastic representatives from Barclays, Pune.
MNMV is a residential school at Loni Kalbor that caters to the developmental needs of 45 children with special needs, all who come from families that find it very difficult to make ends meet.
The day began with getting to know each other and a truly amazing welcome dance that was performed by some of the very talented children of MNMV. Thereafter, our team geared up for the activity session. The simple art techniques were enjoyed by the children and volunteers alike and the joy on the faces of the children on seeing the paint was immeasurable. It was amazing to see the volunteers come down to the level of the children and enjoy each activity wholeheartedly. A number of master pieces were created by the end of the two hour session. After a quick lunch break, the kids played musical chairs and passing the parcel. The day ended with a fruitful feedback session, with everyone having expressed that it was a day well spent!
Heartfelt gratitude to all who brought out the best in the children and helped make this a very special day for each of them. We’re sure that you will agree that the memories of the time spent with the children is something that we all will truly treasure.
