On 6th March, 2012, women beneficiaries of RASTA STeP center(delhi) went to Air France office, to exposure visit and also celebrated Women’s Day and Holi.This trip was very useful to the women as they interacted with the staff members of Air France in great detail. The event started with a general introduction of what Air France is about and what kind of work do they do. This was followed by an introduction by the women beneficiaries, wherein, they talked about their background and what their aspirations are.
After this, the beneficiaries were taken around in the Air France office, where they interacted with other employees as well as came to know about the various departments in which they worked. This interaction was the most enlightening interaction for the beneficiaries as they came to know about various things, of which they were unaware.
This exercise acted as a motivator for all the people present in there. The stories of the aspired women of Chhoone do Aasman not only moved the employees of Air France but also our beneficiaries. After this, a small question-answer round was held, wherein, the beneficiaries cleared their doubts about the functioning of the office.
This session was followed by a nice lunch that was sponsored by Air France. And then there was an activity of hand printing on the canvass, which highlighted the pledges taken by each and everyone to celebrate womanhood as well as respect it. Air France wished each other Happy Holi by putting a tika with the gulaal etc.
Overall, the women beneficiaries were very inquisitive about all the things that they came to know. They interacted well with the staff members of Air France and enjoyed all the moments.
