Leaving an Impact on Young Minds

CHILDLINE India Foundation » CIF Events » Leaving an Impact on Young Minds

The day began with a zest to make a difference. Sixty committed employees of Deloitte reached their designated shelter homes at Juhu and Khar, to do their bit and help contribute to a better life for those less privileged than themselves.

This year's Deloitte IMPACT Day , celebrated on June 11, 2010, very accurately symbolised what the day stands for- 'an important act'. For this act since past four years the company is joining hands with CHILDLINE to help kids in distress.

An energetic group of 20 employees along with the boys at the Juhu shelter home played lesson imbibing games on Juhu beach. Games were conducted by both Deloitte employees and Henry Sequiera, Program Coordinator, Resource and Mobilisation, CHILDLINE . The 1098 song was taught to the children, to engrave this number in their minds.

Right after, the employees began painting cartoon characters on the walls of both the shelter homes-Juhu and Khar. Close to 40 employees participated in the same. While these employees enjoyed adding colour to the lives of these children, a total of 30 employees explored the slums of Juhu and Khar in order to conduct outreach programmes. This activity also included completing surveys for Childline.

Amidst this bustle, fun activities were also being conducted at both the shelter homes. These included darts, hoola hoops and Yoga to name a few, leading to lunch.

After lunch, a drawing competition was conducted which showcased the immense talent the boys and girls possessed. A prize distribution was carried out for the same.

Deloitte also sponsored a cupboard and books for the children.

The end of the day saw a collection of over 600 surveys (including previously filled surveys), coloured walls, a showcase of talent, a bunch of inspired employees feeling proud to have supported a cause, and a smile on the face of the children.

"Today was the fourth consecutive year, when the employees from Deloitte along with CHILDLINE have left a lasting impression on the children. The survey, which they presented today for Child Protection, is a part of the research for CHILDLINE. The data was collected by them over a period of three months. Their commitment and hard-work mirrors their enthusiasm and the Impact thus created won't fade away with this day," informs P J Varghese, Head, Resource Mobilization, CHILDLINE India Foundation.
