Global Armacell Day - India
In this year, Armacell India’s Employee Engagement Committee (EEC) brainstormed several Ideas with an objective to celebrate Global Armacell Day while engaging employees in a social cause, which would build a compassion in workforce as well as an initiative which can contribute towards needy section of society. An Idea to create happiness through spending quality time with differently abled kids at Snehalaya Education society was liked by all instantly!
On 20th September 2016, our employees & EEC visited Snehalaya, also known as “home of love” Fr. Sunny Joseph, humanitarian & a director of Snehalaya along with a physiotherapist shared their Vision, Purpose, Challenges, scientific causes of disability, physical & social needs of differently abled kids as well as an advice on how to deal with kids, followed by a tour of school infrastructure which is specially designed to cater special needs. It was a fascinating experience to meet & mix appx. 50 kids with 35 employees to celebrate activities like Drum Circle, Dance Performance, Birthday celebration, Gift distribution & "Break Bread Together"… It was amazing to see employees being caring, supporting & encouraging kids at the same time kid’s participation, involvement and exuberance in activities was magnanimous.
Towards end with thanking note, as a token of love and support Armacell India donated INR 8,00,000 towards building a self-sustainable vocational training center which will put efforts to bring at least few kids to the main stream by skill & confidence building. Our Learning – Every kid deserves equal opportunity, care and encouragement to build better tomorrow, regardless of challenges they may or may not face. We trust, “this contribution will hopefully lead towards creating happiness & better tomorrow for the differently abled kids”.
Team India Wishes You A Very Happy Global Armacell Day!!!
