To mark Children’s Day 2014 the Altruists at IMI Kolkata supported by generous contributions from students, faculty and staff spread smiles among the children of the “All Children Together Trust”, an orphanage at Lake Gardens, Kolkata, last Sunday. The day saw 21 student volunteers:

Deepak, Shreyansh, Sahil, Srikrishan, Rohit, Neha, Manish, Vikram, Akash, Syed, Piyush, Mohit, Kinjal, Sayantanee, Sanchita, Vedshree, Snehal, Amrita, Khushboo, Ritika, Arun apart from the Altruist trio (Harsh, Shreyta and Pallav)put up various fun games, a children’s day Quiz alongside a basic awareness programme on hygiene and health (in keeping with the Swachha Bharat Abhiyan). With active participation from Dean Academics, Prof. Khushbu Agrawal and Dr. Rituparna Basu. The event marked as yet another successful chapter to our bigger social initiatives goal. Gifts, chocolates, packets of biscuits/ cakes and many more goodies were distributed among the children.

What we got back home is a memory full of happy faces, warm smiles and sparkling eyes that will keep motivating us for all our future endeavours!

It would be pertinent to mention here that we are already planning our next social initiative event around Christmas. Will keep you posted.

Till then keep smiling
