Toybank Delhi and IBM's On Demand Community organized a toy collection drive in August in all the IBM offices in Delhi/NCR. The toys collected were segregated and wrapped by IBM's employee volunteers.
Working with children through Pankhudi Foundation is one of the initiatives under IBM's ODC. One of the focus areas at Pankhudi is to visit orphanages and special schools for children and volunteer with assistance.
Toybank and IBM volunteers visited Pankhudi's Priyanka camp where Pankhudi's volunteers teach the children from the slums opposite CRRI every Sunday for 2 hours. The programme is mainly focused on teaching English to the children. The children go to a nearby govt school.
We reached around 10 AM on the 26th of Sept and the event went on till 12 30 PM. The kids were a naughtiest bunch we have ever met :) but we had loads of fun and came back happy after distributing the toys to them! Catch all the action here!
