Celebrating Children’s Day with a Bang

“How many of us think about giving back to the society? Hats off to Smile Foundation and Nava Karnataka for their initiative in providing education to underprivileged children,” said Chintan Mithaiwala, Assistant Manager, Occupational and Development Markets, DTZ International Property Advisers, during the children’s day celebrations at Nava Karnataka Social Service (NKSS) centre, one of the Mission Education projects supported by Smile Foundation in Bengaluru.

More than 350 tiny tots had a day filled with fun and frolic as 16 employees from the corporate made children feel how special and important they are. The employees and children conducted surfeit of activities on November 14, 2009 at NKSS. Children actively participated in group dance, face painting, fancy dress and drawing competition. The classrooms were skilfully decorated by children and they were showered upon with unfathomable love and affection by the staff from the corporate.

“It was very touching to have spent a special day with such lovely children and having done our bit to spread smiles around. I was amazed by the talent and enthusiasm that children displayed. For me it was one of the worthwhile moments spent so far for a noble cause,” said Priya V, Regional Manager, Human Resources, DTZ International Property Advisers.

A fancy dress competition was organised on the occasion where children dressed up as doctor, nurse, teacher, barbie doll, Miss India, Indira Gandhi, Michael Jackson and their favourite Chacha Nehru. Face painting competition was another attraction for employees. While there were children who painted modern art on the face of other child; it was spider’s house on one face that won the best award.

“We had never seen such a programme before. It was a fantastic experience. We had a great time with the children,” said S. Daniel Raj, Manager, Nava Karnataka Social Service Trust.

The entertaining day ended with all collectively tapping their feet on various dance numbers and relishing the delicacies distributed by the employees. It was an amusing day for all children as they took away lots of gifts including tiffin box, geometry box, sketch pens, colour pencils and other interesting items. The winners of each competition won exclusive gift hampers.

“Spending time with the kids was not just fun but also very inspiring. While one of the kids said she wants to become a doctor and open a hospital for the poor, another dreamt of being a police officer. Guna, one of the many kids I interacted with lost his father at a very young age, yet he has the courage to battle through all odds. He participated in all the activities including dance, face painting and making of clay models. I was told that he is also good in academics and quite popular among peers. I wish Guna and all other kids of Smile Foundation, the very best in life. Hope to be a part of many more such events,” added Chintan Mithaiwala.
