MUMBAI, SEP 28, 2018: Fifteen boys from standard five to eight of Bosco Boys Home (BBH), Borivli participated in a college festival, Zephyr – an annual cultural event organised by Thakur College of Engineering and Technology, Kandivli on September 27.
The festival encourages togetherness, fun, knowledge, creativity, and innovation among youth, and the Rotaract Club of the Institute invited the orphans from BBH to their festivity.
Youth from the Home proudly wore their jerseys along with their names displayed on it. The pre-event dance practice was conducted with help of volunteers from the college. The dance was choreographed by Thakur College students.
The BBH youth also learned to make creative items with the help of the hosts. There were various game stalls at the college campus, in which the boys participated.
Waigankar, one of the teachers, said, "I thank the Bosco Boys staff and the management for the immense support and giving us the opportunity to spend time with the boys and I hope this day brought a little change, enthusiasm, and freshness amongst the students."
"We want to thank you for your hard work. Thank you for teaching us dance and having fun with us. You brought us in your esteemed college and explained to us about the college. Particularly, I was impressed with the students wearing t-shirts with motivational words 'We aspire…We inspire' outfits. We all thank you and we hope you will come again to Bosco Boys Home to inspire and have fun with us and bring joy to the faces of Bosco Boys," Richardson Fernando, a student of BBH, said.
