Upgradation of Vocational Training Centre at DBRC

14 April 2015

GENPACT India continues its support for the Young at Risk in DBNJ, Ramanthapur. On 09th April 2015 the Vocational Training Centre was upgraded with new and latest machinery in the sections of Printing, Welding, Carpentry, Tailoring and Bakery with the support of GENPACT India.

Ms. Sucharita Thakur, Vice-president was the Chief Guest and Mr. Radha Krishna Patel (RK) & a team of 15 employees were other Guests of Honour. The Inauguration Programme started at 2.30 pm with welcome band by our school going children. Prior to it all the guests interacted with children and both children and guest enjoyed being coming to know each other. Once the chief guest arrived the official inaugural ceremony began. Master Aadharsh was an Anchor for the Inaugural programme and children performed a few dances and a skit. Later, Fr. Bellamkonda Sudhakar, Director in his introductory words welcomed the chief guest and other representatives from GENPACT, he recollected all the activities that are done in collaboration with GENPACT for the past one half of year. He thanked the support that they extended towards these children’s rehabilitation. He thanked whole heartedly all the employees of GENPACT India for their generosity and continuous support.

The boys from the vocational training centre presented a skit on “Science”. This was a remarkable event as these boys are currently preparing for their open tenth and have not been through regular schooling. The dances put up by the children were much appreciated. Ms. Sucharita Thakur chief guest of the day was very appreciative of the work done by Don Bosco for the most needy and deserving children of the society. She also said that she is very happy to be part of this programme and wished all the vocational training children to utilize all the resources that are available and wanted to see the children to study well and to settle well in their life. She also recalled her experience being part of Don Bosco for past year and half.

Another surprising dance put up by one of the Genpact employee by name Terence who was a past pupil of Don Bosco Egmore. He was very happy to see a Don Bosco home because he himself grew up with Salesian for about 8 years. His dance performance attracted most of our boys.  It was a wonderful performance.

Later Ms. Sucharita was felicitated by with a bouquet by Master Ganesh and with a shawl by Ms. Mary. She thanked all the staff members and wished them all the best. Then all the vocational training children and staff proceeded to the workshop to inaugurate the new Machinery. Later the Instructors of the particular section demonstrated use of these Machinery. All the Guests were happy and wished all the best. The programme concluded by 5pm with Tea.
