Eliminate Child Labour : Movie Screening by Slum Children


  Ryan International School, Sohna Road, Gurgaon organized a ‘Movie Screening’ programme to Chisel the vision ‘Values’ of respected Chairman Sir, Dr. Augustine F. Pinto under the project ‘Eliminate Child Labour’ launched by CBSE. Students volunteers from the school along with two teachers visited nearby slum area and convinced the local crowd to send their ward to the school every Tuesday. On their visit to the school on 28-07-2015, a movie ‘I am Kalam’ was screened in which a child labourer, who is a tea-seller, gets inspired by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam’s speech and inclines towards studies. This was also to pay homage to the Missile Man; a true ‘Bharat Ratna’ a humane leader, whom we lost recently. Many more activities like craft, academics, singing, vocational training are planned by the school for these children to know the importance of education in life and to bring about the change in society. Principal Ms. Rakhi Verma also motivated these students to be the change and uplift the community.
