Project Share: Joy of Giving
SIBC in association with Edukidz International Tilak Nagar and Edukidz International, Powai successfully organized the Fistful of Grains drive on 17th October, 2019. Discussions on the issues of poverty, food wastage and hunger instilled the values of empathy, kindness and service to society among the 60 tiny toddlers. Other than providing for SDG 2, this project helped sensitize the students towards the problem of hunger and also how, little acts of charity can go a long way to bring a smile on someone. The donations were sent to the local shelters ‘Sulbha’, home for differently abled children and ‘Vatsalya’, an orphanage.

To commemorate World Food Day (16th October) and International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (17th October), SI Bombay Chembur collaborated with Pillai College of Education & Research, (PCER) Chembur to provide grains such as rice, moong dal, sugar and glucose biscuits to the underprivileged section in our society. SI Bombay Chembur members had requested the participants to bring the grains in packets of half a kilogram each. After collection these grains were segregated into individual categories so that it becomes easier to distribute to the beneficiaries. these packets were then distributed among the slum dwellers at the Amar Mahal junction. The project impacted around 300 hundred people (approx. 100 families).
