The beginning of this partnership with Smile Foundation was marked with an employee engagement programme.

There was a painting and a dancing competition that was conducted where the volunteers and children together participated as teams. While the children took the lead in performing for the team, the volunteers had taken the responsibility of supervising and guiding their young teammates.
Both, the children and the volunteers had a great time together. At the end of the programme, prizes were distributed to all the winners of respective activities and games.
