Universal Childrens Day Celebration
Universal Children’s Day
December 07th 2008
I know the day is not the Universal Children’s Day, but we celebrated the event on this day. Here we refer to the DVCI Community relations. We support or we try to do our bit in a sense to give back to community a kind of act which affects many lives.
It was a sunny Day and we were hoping a lot of action while the day proceeds. Amdocs supports four organization viz. Annapurna, Rachna, Saraswati, Salvation Army. These organizations provide support and shelter to the orphan children.
We planned to organize and celebrate the Universal Children’s Day with kids from these organizations. Planning started quite a long back as we were planning to organize such an event which will be kind of unique and each and every kid enjoy it. We had meeting DVCI Community Relations meeting, ideas started to pore, we were sure at one point that we want to organize a full day long event.
After lot of ideation sessions, and reckoning we all agreed upon an event which will look like a fair infect we ended upon a decision that we will organize a fair in which lot many stalls, games, amusement and entertainment will be there.
The Event started with the National anthem and lamp lighting from our DVCI Community Relations Head Jitendra Dutt Sharma. After that kids were separated into two groups and they were free to play games and visit stalls.
It was observed that kids were very active in outdoor games and the games in which lot of physical activity was involved. Stalls were there and kids were attracted to one stall in which you have to aim a pyramid of glasses with a tennis ball in course to take down the pyramid in three chances.
Some kids were good at carom challenge stall and it was seen children’s were well versed with general knowledge and mathematics, as they did fairly well on quizzes.
Children’s from some organization came up with the science projects, as we have informed them in advance that there will be a science project competition and one with the best project will win the competition. Kids took that challenge and came up with really good projects. One was on wind mills and one was on power generation using road speed breakers.
Kids enjoyed the food as well and post lunch we thought kids will feel bit tired but we were taken aback as kids were full of energy and ready to play other games such as one minute games and the enjoyed jumping castle and other stalls.
As the day proceeds to an end, kids felt kind of tired and at the right moment came in the popcorn and Frisbee and some other snacks along with tattoo maker (oh he was there since morning, but from morning he was not that busy). Tattoo maker faced some hard time as when was making different tattoos, so later he decided to make same tattoo on all kids
In evening we had a few dance performances from kids and the prize distribution. Later when kids were leaving we gave them a gift with our best wishes.
All went well in the end and kids return to their places safely.
