A Memorable Day with the Kids at the Hope Foundation
“Children are the world’s most valuable resource and its best hope for the future”—John F. Kennedy.
Rightfully so, but unfortunately, children are also the worst hit in any human or natural crisis. Be it a natural calamity, a pandemic, our existing environmental predicaments, or war. Time and again children have borne the brunt of all that’s ill in the society, the mistakes of the elders.
So, it falls upon all of us, the adults to do our part in making the world safer for the younger and future generations. Those were the exact thoughts and inspirations behind Brainium’s CSR initiative at the Hope Foundation in Kolkata this month.
Philanthropy has been one of the core founding principles at Brainium Information Technologies; something close to the vision and ideologies of the founding members, who have always prioritized giving back to the community. Every year, we undertake multiple initiatives of social and charitable significance, as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility Activity Program.
This year we initiated our CSR activity for 2022 with a visit to the Hope Foundation in Kolkata at Kasba branch to spend some quality time with 30 children, inducted into the organization’s aid program. Most of these children live in the nearby slums, hailing from underprivileged backgrounds and the foundation aids them with the necessities, especially helping them continue their studies, to become well-formed and knowledgeable adults.
On March 1st, 2022, we reached the Kasba Crèche premises of Hope Foundation in Kolkata to spend some precious moments with the children. All 30 children were gifted school bags stationary necessities, food packets, and treats. It was followed by some fun engagement with the children. It was an afternoon of smiles and hope for the children upon whom rests the future of us and this society.
Those few hours of love and laughter would be cherished by us for days to come; their beautiful and innocent smiling faces inspire us to strive further in such causes, to do our part in leaving a positive imprint on society.
