January 12th being the National Youth Day in order to sensitize Social responsibility among the youth, all the members of Faculty and student volunteers of Department of Commerce, visited a NGO, Don Guanella Aged Home, GuanellaPreethiNivas at Gedallahalli, Bangalore.
Department of Commerce did a need based study of the NGO and provided 25 rubbersheets to be used on the mattress at the old age home. We also provided a 22L Water Purifier from Kent. Groceries required for a month as per their needs was offered to the inmates. Besides all the fun and frolic we had for the elders, they were also offered a pouch of healthy eatables.
The Cultural program organized, included an Invocation song rendered by Mr.Godson of 2ndSem and a group dance organized by the 4th Semester students to a medley of foot tapping dance numbers. Dance floor was open to the grandpa’s. It was stunning to witness the inmates shred all their worries, illness and joined the students on the dance floor. A few grandpas were super excited and dancing with high levels of energy. This memorable event came to an end with some clicks and pic’s.
This community service left the students and staff pondering over the words ‘Share and Care’, which gives a sense of Commitment and Contentment at the end of the day.
