23rd March 2016
An Orphanage houses children of various age groups who either have no family or have lost their families in a natural calamity. One such visit was organized by the PCMRD Community Development Cell (PCDC cell) on 23rd March 2016 at Bhartiya Samaj Seva Kendra (BSSK) Koregaon Park, Pune.
Faculty, staff and the students contributed generously to fund the requirements of BSSK. With these funds, Tetra Packs of Milk, Washing powder and other items were acquired and donated to the orphanage.
The goal of BSSK is to find a family who will raise them as one of their own family member, a foster family.
An attempt has been made by our responsible students to provide the best that they could afford to care for the children. Things are not perfect and may never be perfect, but striving for better is the message that we at PCMRD try to convey through our student activities.
A visit to an orphanage is a life changing experience as it is filled with emotions and sentiments. The students came back home not only with memories but also some valuable lessons.
