Indian Academy Degree College – Autonomous, Dept. of PG-Commerce in association with the Dept. of Economics organized a visit to The Refuge Foundation, Kothunur Bangalore on 2nd March 2019. Keeping in mind humanistic and social learning objective, the departments undertook this extension activity.
We learnt from the organizers that around 30 young orphan girls are being taken care by the family. They make sure of their shelter, food, education and other expenses. The girls receive equal opportunities, parental care and affection under one roof.
On our arrival the children of Refuge Foundation welcomed us warmly. The students distributed snacks and sweets to the children and interacted with them. The students conducted games and activities for the inmates of the home. The children thoroughly enjoyed and participated actively.
As a token of our concern for them a few grocery items purchased from contribution of students were given; which was gratefully received by the Family.
It was an overwhelming experience to visit the orphanage and to interact with the children.
