BAISAKHI CELEBRATION BY GREENTHINKERZ TEAM AT GURU AASRA: 14th April 2015
Volunteers of Green ThinkerZ Society celebrated the festival of "Baisakhi" with resident children of Guru Asra Trust, Phase - 7, Mohali; under the flagship of their social sustainability programme which is one of the core Principle of the philosophy of the society.
The members of the society participated in the assortment of events viz Shabad Keertan, Gatka, Gura ka Langar, Cake Cutting Ceremony. They also organized Drawing competition and Poem competition. The resident children of the trust also participated actively and enthusiastically in all the events.
The day long events have been focussed to inculcate the value education among the youth. The contribution and participation of the children of the trust were encouraged through prizes sponsored by the Green ThinkerZ Society.
The "Baisakhi" celebration have been a wonderful experience and a two way learning process for both organizations on a single platform. The similar events would be organized in the near future too to spread the philosophy of society among the masses.
Gur Aasra Trust has set itself the exacting task of providing care and nourishment to those children who, spurned by their near and dear ones, could not find any succour in the society. Ours is not merely a refuge, it's a sanctuary where the helpless train to help themselves. That's why education is a major component of our rehabilitation programme. Quality and timely education prepares the children in such a way that when they grow up, they need not look askance at anyone. Therefore our byword is not so much shelter as empowerment. Our objective is not confined to care and sympathy, it encompasses a responsibility to shape up young lives. Our programme goes beyond a communitarian need by taking up social challenges. In the course of preparing children for the life ahead, we also collaterally build up the base for a more humane and tolerant society by inculcating in our students the values they would have otherwise found hard to come by. Sarbat da bhala (good of all) is our prime objective that propells us towards excellence in whatever we undertake to do.
