THE NGID program at Gurukul Vidyapeeth , Thane on 11th May, 2017 was sponsored by Nielsen India partnering with Indian Development  Foundation. Two members from the Indian Development foundation team Mr Sanjay Wagmare and Dr Sharad Nayampally facilitated the whole program along with the Nielsen Volunteers .

The program had 195 children of various age groups and it began with a beautiful prayer thereby seeking blessings and wisdom to lead and conduct a good life.Students were split into group with Nielsen volunteers and various activities were carried out. An interesting activity done was skits. Children were given topics like Career progression, awareness on Tobacco and Drugs, Patriotism. Children came up with very creative ways of performing the skits with limited resources and limited time.
Group discussion on career progression gave a chance to children to articulate  their thoughts and feelings. Other activities done were group dance, solo dance, group singing, solo singing . The Nielsen Volunteers were so happy with the performances that gifts were given to the best performances.

The children after a hearty  meal were given notebooks and compass  for the academic year ending their day with awesome smiles .

Jai Ho !
