Bala Mela is more like a celebration rather than an event we have here at Montfort. We celebrate children on this day, and try to make the best of the few hours we spend with them. On this day there are a number of underprivileged children from orphanages or NGOs who arrive at our campus. We have small games stations , we provide meals and have an entertainment program for them as well. To make them feel more comfortable and to give them a feeling of togetherness we also have something known as the ' Kid Buddy system.'
What happens here is that students can enroll to be a Kid Buddy, after which they need to take care of a few children for the rest of the day.They literally become their buddy, share their life experiences and get quite comfortable with them. It's a very wholesome and fulfilling experience that the kid buddies take back with them. Along with this, the children also get attached to their kid buddies and look forward to coming back the next year.
In this way Bala Mela aims at truly making this day special for the children. We not only focus on keeping them entertained , providing meals, or giving them a going away present, but we also get involved with them throughout the day. This is an experience we share with them and it creates a beautiful bond.
At the same time good intentions is not all it takes to make this dream come true. We can't shy away from the fact that we need funding to make this successful in the best way possible. It's easy to make do with what we have, but we would want to give them the best of the best and for that we need all the help we can get. If you want to be a part of this experience then do contribute as much as you can. It's all for these children who want nothing but to feel loved and cared for.
Hope you had a great Diwali.
Every year our college celebrates children's day for children who do not have the privilege of having a family. We bring children from different organizations and try to make the day as special as possible for all of them. We give them two meals, have activities and games and even give them some gifts.
Collecting funds is a crucial task and it is imperative in order to be able to serve the children and make their day special.
Your contribution big or small would make a huge difference. We request you to join hands with us and make this day a memorable one for the children 🙂
Thanks in advance :)
