December 3, 2008

The Children’s Empowerment and Awareness programme in association with Institute of Clinical Research, Bangalore turned out to be a grand success. The Children performed like pros and the audience enjoyed every moment of it. The staff and students of ICRI were inspired and amazed by the performance. They were cheering them throughout the 20 minute performance. The street march which followed was also well recieved by the public and many of them joined us in the march. Hats off to the determination and efforts of the highly talented children.

 

Report:

Activity: The activities consisted of inauguration of the program at 9:30 am by the Principal of the college. This was followed by talks by Dr. Manjula, Dr. Mohanty and Dr. Dayaprasad G Kulkarni. After this the children first sang the Dannish song which was taught to them by our Dannish Intern Camma. Then the remaining 20 children performed the Play which was very well received and got plenty of applauds.
