For this year's Citizen Commitment Week, which will take place between 27th and 31st May, our colleagues in India are dedicating their solidarity events to Akanksha, an NGO supporting child education. Here are all their events for the week !
27-31 May: Joy of Giving (Donation Drive)
A donation drive for books, compass boxes, stationery, etc, will be conducted within SG India.
In the week of June 10th, either the Akanksha kids can be brought to the SG office, or the employees can go to an Akanksha centre (GD Somani), and distribute the kits and interact with the students.
28 May: Art & Craft Stall
The stall will showcase various arts & craft that the children of Akanksha have made, each product has a theme and thought behind it. The stalls are an interactive way to get employees to know more about the NGO by experiencing their products and spending time with Akanksha alumni. Employees will be encouraged to buy the various products, thereby making a direct contribution to the NGO
28-29 May: Jigsaw canvas painting
Group activity amongst employees and Akanksha kids.
A piece of canvas is given to each employee and they have to paint their piece with the help of the kids. In the end, everyone gets together to make the canvas complete. (The canvas is predesigned to be a part of a bigger collage)
31 May: Pay for Lunch (Fundraising)
Every employee pays Rs.100 to have lunch.
We will tie the CCW ribbon on each contributor while collecting the fund and that will act as an identifier of his/her contribution. The money collected will be donated to Akanksha.
