SIBC in association with Pillai College of Education & Research, Chembur on the occasion of the Joy of Giving Week conducted the project ‘Fistful of Grain’ on 4th October, 2018. The project aimed at collecting and providing food grains such as rice, moong dal, sugar and glucose biscuits to the underprivileged. The students of the college offered fistful of grains which were then made in packets of 250 gms each and was distributed among 60 families living in the slums and street at the Amar Mahal Junction, Chembur.
Another objective of this project was to imbibe among the students the act of sharing, the joy of giving and the feeling of empathy for others, especially the deprived sections in our society. The students were thoroughly moved when they were distributing the items to the beneficiaries. Around 75 students participated in this initiative.
The event was coordinated by Dr. Sunita Wadikar, Dr. Reni Francis, Dr. Sunita Jain and Dr. Swasti Dhar.
