On September 09th, 80 employees from First American (India) commonly known as FAI visited our headquarters as part of employee volunteering.
It was an action-packed day. All the employees led by Mr. Kevin – Senior Lead CSR were grouped into 4, and each visited Govt. Higher Primary School – Vapasandra, Govt. Girls High School – Vapasandra, Karnataka Model school – Chikkaballapur, Govt. Urdu Primary School – Chikkaballapur, where Morning Nutrition is served in the form of SaiSure Malt Multi Nutrient Health Mix with milk.
Employees of FAI along with Annapoorna Trust employees interacted and engaged with children and staff of the respective schools very well. The children eagerly welcomed the guests with a placard with a welcome note for the FAI team. In each of the schools, employees mingled with children in a variety of activities like quizzes, general questionnaires, mimicry, value games, songs, and dance programme with musical instruments.
The volunteers served breakfast and SaiSure and they too relished SaiSure drink along with children. The employees realized that a simple act of serving food while giving complete attention to the children regularly is vital to their overall personality growth.
After the much-cherished school visits, they were given a tour of Sarla Memorial Hospital at Sathya Sai Grama where medical services are provided free of charge, walking them through the various departments and their functionalities. They were touched by the selfless service rendered by the doctors, staff, and volunteers.
Along with this they also had a tour of our headquarters and a visit to our Nutraceutical facility – SAISURE. Here, all the employees were briefed on how the production of Malt and Millet-based products are produced at this facility and distributed to Government schools across the country. They were also explained the model of Sarkara (Government), Samaja (Society), and Sanstha (Like Minded institutions & partners) when joined together, can uplift the society.
At the end of the day, the employees took back with them rich experiences of volunteering with a feeling of being an important part of the community for a noble cause.
