TCS, Chennai made a noble initiative to donate dresses to all our kids on the account of this year’s Deepavali. The event was held a week after Deepavali on 9th Nov. Deepam wishes to thank TCS on this wonderful gesture that was recieved very well by our kids and volunteers. Some pictures from the event are attached
With incessant rains through night, it looked like we wouldn’t have enough kids to take for the excursion today. And so 3 of us went to the school to make sure the few who turned up, went back home safely. Much to our surprise, we had a full strength of 20 kids and after a lot of discussion, deliberation and confusion, we decided to stick to the plan and take the kids along in 2 cars and an auto. And as expected, it turned out to be a memorable visit to the Planetarium.
Children were super excited to see live models at Transport, Ocean, Electronic & Communication and Mirror galleries. Children were then provided some refreshments which was followed by the astonishing 30 min cosmic show which was an absolute visual treat. The children were then taken to a 3D show with entertaining kids films.
Our endeavor to reward enthusiastic volunteers every month continues to be a testimony of Deepam’s recognition for our volunteer fraternity.
In this order, Srividya of VRS center is our “Featured Volunteer of the Month” for Oct’13. A short write-up on her by the center head Abhishek Mundra is given below…
“Srividya is an extremely committed volunteer and has been an active volunteer with VRS for almost 2 years now. She participates pro-actively in all our efforts and makes valuable contribution when required. She was deeply involved in the ‘Curriculum Planning’ exercise and her spirited participation and involvement were a motivation to the Deepam Curriculum Team.
Srividya commutes an hour every Saturday, but that is no deterrent She currently teaches the kids of the Advanced Batch at VRS and is very effective in her interactions with the kids. Kudos to her for a very deserving ‘Volunteer of the Month’ award.”
