Lovedale Foundation is an NGO in Bangalore with more than 50 volunteers that runs various social service events in schools and remote areas of Karnataka where people do not have access to basic facilities including education and clean drinking water facilities. In collaboration with corporate partner Novo Nordisk Pharmaceuticals, we mainly focus on women strengthening, child development, education, skill development, and environmental protection.
Our volunteers visited Banyan school, Bangalore on 28th October to meet the deprived children and their parents in order to boost their moral support. We had an interactive session of talks, games, speeches on that day. Also, as a CSR NGO, we distributed essential supplies that include books, educational kits, nutrition supplies, few grocery items to support their education and growth. Basic educational materials are very useful to children for their education. The program made us feel motivated and calm, the joy and smile on the children’s faces made our day.
Banyan School has always been close to our hearts because we are helping children there for many years. More than 10 children have been sponsored for educational programs and in sports too.
A donation to the people in need attracts a blessing from God. In your tough time, God will help you through people, through money, through animals, through incidents, etc. It also brings peace of mind and makes a person valuable and respectable. Giving helps gain social connection, makes feel happy and healthy. A small step brings a big change because you have no idea how many people you are inspiring and motivating to do so.
