MUMBAI, JUNE 5, 2017: Over 70 children hailing from neighbouring slums participated in International Children's Day celebrations that included games, music and dance at Shelter Don Bosco in Matunga on June 1.
Albert Bhandare, who was coordinating the programme, motivated the children with the help of videos that urged the youth to dig out their potential and search for their hidden talent. "There is nothing in this world that we cannot achieve. We have to work hard and persevere to reach our ultimate goal," he said.
Twenty volunteers from J B Vachha High School, Dadar, from the Holiday Youth programme, assisted in running game stalls at the fete. The children then took to the dance floor and grooved to the latest Bollywood numbers. Each child received a prize according to the number of tokens they won.
Coincidentally, being the 'World Milk Day', they got to relish a packet of milkshake that was sponsored by Hershey's.
