Isha Vidhya Cuddalore School’s 3rd grade teacher took a nutrition class to educate the students about the reasons to eat healthy food and shunning junk food.
Students prepared healthy fruits salad with the help of their teacher and learnt about the nutritional value of each fruit. Later, at end of the class, every one enjoyed the taste of salads. They also made a vow that they would avoid junk food in future.
We are attaching the pictures from the class. If you would like to provide suggestions on healthy food options, please do feel free to email email@example.com and we will pass it on to the schools.
Thank you for your support of Isha Vidhya, and looking forward for your continued support!
L’Oreal got introduced to Isha Vidhya recently. A volunteering session ("Isha Vidhya Corporate Workshop") was organized at L'Oreal's Mumbai office.
Approximately 60 participants which included employees of L’Oreal, 9 Isha volunteers from Mumbai, and Prachi and Tara of United Way Mumbai came together to create learning materials for Isha Vidhya. Everyone participated with great enthusiasm to complete approximately 850 display charts and 30 handwritten charts.
After being provided a brief introduction about Isha Vidhya, the participants were split into two groups; the display charts group and the handwritten group. Initially, the participants were stunned by the behemothic task of finishing around 900 charts. Abbas, the team leader of the display chart group motivated both the groups by taking the microphone and announcing the completion of the charts by either teams as and when they are done!
It turned out to be a memorable experience for everyone and an opportunity to contribute to the rural students' learning and growth in an hands-on manner.
We provide herewith the pictures of the event!
If you would like to organize such corporate volunteering activities with your company, please feel free to do so, and email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can take it forward!
Thanks for all the support you have provided for Isha Vidhya!
