On 17th June 2016, FIS Global conducted an employee engagement activity at Mera Parivar, a Mission Education centre which it supports. 20 employees and 30 children took part in the activity, the theme of which was- Importance of Environment, which was celebrated in lieu of the World Environment Day (5th June).
The employees conducted a small session on the environment and the existing hazards to it. They imparted knowledge about the conservation of the environment and the three R’s which everyone should follow- Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
The session was followed by a quiz among the kids on the same theme. The children were divided into groups and volunteers were allotted to them. The volunteers along with the children learnt how to make bags out of newspapers.
The children were taught about the importance of using paper and cloth bags and the disadvantages of the polythene bags. The children made beautiful bags out of the waste newspapers, which they had also carried back to their homes.
The activity ended with the distribution of refreshments and other interactions with the children. Both the volunteers and children had a great learning experience.
