GIHE Visit ‘The Orphan Home'
A group of eleven students from GEMS lnstitute of Higher Education, accompanied by the Plus Two Coordinator paid a visit to the orphanage called 'The Orphans Homes' located at Saibu-3, Lalitpur on December 25, 2013. The purpose of the visit was to share Christmas mid-day dinner with the orphans and to know about their upkeep in the orphanage. The cost of the special dinner was borne by the college and the generous donation collected by the students. The orphanage centre established in 1991 A.D. is being run under the patronage of Mrs. Rita Rai, who had donated her own ancestral property to establish the centre, where a total of 35 destitute children hailing from different remote parts of the country are being brought up and educated. On their arrival, the students were accorded a hearty welcome and briefed about the centre. The children in the orphanage thoroughly enjoyed the day sharing the special dinner, playing games and dancing with the visiting students. The students felt that it was a most memorable experience, and were touched by discovering the real plight of the children before their adoption in the orphanage.
