Bandhan ties Strong Bonds with the Community

Continuing the annual tradition of celebrating Independence Day with "Bandhan",a student-led initiative by the Net Impact Club of the Indian School of Business (ISB), the year’s event, too, was a grand success. 334 children from less-privileged backgrounds visited the School to celebrate a fun-filled day with the ISB community.

The campus came alive with fun, laughter and camaraderie as the children interacted with their peers from different schools, through various team-building games such as “Fire on the Mountain,” “Tug of War,” “Passing the Parcel” and “Fill the Bucket,” amongst others, organised by the ISB volunteers. Apart from games, the children participated in a dance workshop and an art and craft workshop, where they learned how to make personalised photo frames, which they took home as souvenirs.

The highlight of the day was a cultural show, where the different school groups gave dance performances and sang patriotic songs. A student from the Kare School delivered a speech, in which she encouraged her peers to take education seriously so as to “gain true independence.”

Besides providing enjoyment, the purpose of Bandhan is to spread the message of “empowerment through education.” It is hoped that these children will be motivated to rise through their challenges and achieve success for themselves, their families and society. This year, the participating organisations were Naandi Foundation, Kare School, Sphoorti, Ashray Akruti, Don Bosco Navajeevan and Devnar School for Blind.

Earlier, to mark Independence Day, Professor Milind Sohoni and S. P. Balasubramanian of the LRC, hoisted the flag to the singing of the national anthem.
