“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up” – Pablo Picasso
To help children draw their dreams and to pave path towards development HelpingBrainz in association with the Seva Samarpan Saraswati Vidya Mandir, Ghaziabad (an under bridge school which educates around 200+ underprivileged children from various slums of Vivekanand Nagar Ghaziabad, since 1992. An initiative by Ms.Shalu) conducted Ujjwal-A Day With Chotus.
Under Ujjwal, we conducted Paint Your Dreams painting competition, Dental Check up Campaigns, Donation of school stationery items and One Time Meal, along with music and dance performances by the children.
As per our commitment towards the environment and to be a change that we want to see, we started the event by gifting a sapling to Ms.Shalu who’s the lady behind this wonderful institution.
The event was sponsored by Mayur Kochar, Natasha Jain, Jeet, Archana Srivastava, Gagandeep Kaur and Kundan Choudhury.
Next we plan to start with an educational and career counselling session for the children in the coming weeks.
The event was orchestrated by Kirti Tikyani and Madhup Modi (Women and Child Empowerment Leaders at HelpingBrainz). Others who contributed were Sandeep Gujjar (Elderly Care Projects Team), Anu Choudhary Deshwal and Ashish Kumar (Helping Brainz Team Members), Dr. Shweta Yadav (Our Dentist for a noble cause), Vishal Pandita , Vineeth M Sadanandan, Shambhavi (HelpingBrainz Volunteers) and Yedhu Krishna Menon.
