DaanUtsav Celebration in Bengaluru

We from MTHR were exited about the DaanUtsav preparations and delivery.   October 8th 2016 is a day to be remembered.   Thanks to Jayaprakash, Prof Sapthgiri and Team SCaps for their amazing support in making this memorable.

We stuck to sandwich Daan Seva  and had identified couple of Govt schools and Orphanages where our volunteers were active in distribution.   We had 1600 numbers to cater to in and around South Bangalore. This was increased by another 400 after Robin Hood Army pitched in. Our initiative was supported by I Volunteers Pan India and locally by Robin Hood Army who helped in preparing and distributing the sandwiches.

To ensure that we support this  noble cause, Jain University played a wonderful role by providing not  only the infrastructure, but supported by amazing team of  students from their MBA stream , students from BNM IT, MTHRites , team I volunteers and Robin Hood Army.

MTHRites were touched by the warm gesture and infrastructure provided to us.    Two classroom with neat tables were wrapped up to facilitate the entire process of Sandwich making

Day started well with amazing Team of 80 students from Jain University demonstrated how a LIVE supply chain and distribution can take place.   The entire process was very well orchestrated by them from Making the delivery boxes, labeling it, inserting the wrappers , preparing and packing the sandwiches.   The entire process was seamless.   Later the team was joined by 10 BNMIT students, followed by amazing MTHRites ( HR Professionals) from various corporates in preparing the sandwiches.  Team ivolunteer and Robin Hood Army volunteers joined the action. img-20161008-wa0136

Our MTHRites and Jain University represented by Jaya Prakash were very enthusiastic in distributing the boxes to the kids who were eagerly waiting for us to join them.     Most of them accepted the boxes with smile and we were touched by their gestures.

Most of the kids we met at the  primary school were very enthusiastic and eagerly waiting for the boxes to be distributed and there after we walked to the nearby neighborhood of CFA orphanage.   Here we met lovely kids with special talents.   They had painted the diyas with lovely art which they sell it for raising funds.   Couple of MTHRites picked up the diyas for our homes.    Kids were so disciplined and received the sandwiches with gratitutde.  20161008_134317

Amazing moment was when Shamasundar sir addressed the kids and boosted their morale with invaluable thoughts .  Further he was kind enough to entertain them by mimicing kannada film artists.    After spending couple of minutes there, we departed from the house of these kids with memorable thoughts.

Our last destination in distribution was J P Nagar 3rd phase park where we had kids from the local slums.  They came running as soon as we landed there.  There were chaos all around the park with the families fighting for the packets.   Annapurna and Sumita braced all those chaos and distributed the remaining sandwich boxes.

We all left the place satisfied with memorable thoughts.   We had beautiful smiles around us.    Every one of us were so grateful to Jain University team lead by Prof Sapthagiri, Jayaprakash, Team S Caps, Students and Staff who made the difference and demonstrated Unity is Strength.
