Furthering its commitment towards being a thoughtful ‘people’s’ organization, Droom has decided to celebrate Father’s Day by sprinkling love into the lives of young deprived children. As a part of the initiative, Droom is organizing the special screening of Sachin: A Billion Dreams at PVR Naraina.
Sachin Tendulkar is an inspiration for cricket lovers as well as fence sitters across three generations. Cricket is akin to religion in India and Sachin being the God, nothing inspires the kids of this generation more than the way little master does. With this thought in mind, we decided to organize the special screening of the recent documentary on the life and career of the master blaster.
Commenting on the unique initiative Sandeep Aggarwal, Founder and CEO, Droom, commented, “Traditionally, we have been celebrating Father’s Day by reveling fatherhood and the special father-child bond. This time we thought of doing something entirely different. Why not inspire, motivate and encourage unfortunate underprivilege kids by pampering them with love and joy, this Father’s Day?. This is where the idea bore its genesis from. We will be interacting with the children and speak with them about leadership, problem solving approach and sense of responsibility through fun filled people development activities, inspirational movie and outing sessions, lunch with kids and doing a plethora of other similar kind of activities, through the day.”
Droom will be volunteering with Smile Foundation’s Mission Education Programme, which promotes education and healthcare of the underprivileged children coming from backward rural and urban locations. The program promotes and catalyzes universal education among underprivileged children, build the process to induct these children into mainstream in a sustained manner, strengthen their abilities to cope up with the formal education system, enable them to emerge as productive assets and establish the foundation for nation building.
Speaking on this occasion, Santanu Mishra, Co- Founder and Executive Trustee, Smile Foundation said : India is home to one of the largest young population in the world, a greater portion of which is still uneducated and Education is the only way to come out of the vicious cycle of poverty.”
At present, the Mission Education initiative of Smile Foundation is directly benefiting to 23,000 children through 91 projects across 21 states in India. The day long community activity will be organized on 17th June.
