There are about 19 disadvantaged girls ranging from Grades 1 to 7. Though many are orphans, some children are visited at times by their single parents. The children lead a very disciplined and activity filled day, like rising at 6 am and going for hockey training, etc. All girls are responsible to follow their individual timetable for the English-medium school they study in in order to excel. The visit was marked with singing and dancing performances, a game of musical chairs and a rhythmic gymnastics routine from 8B children and the orphans in turn also showcased their talents. Donations included essential items mainly sponsored by the school management and some donated by the children. They were sanitary pads, coconut oil,items of oral and personal hygiene, papad, both bathing and washing soaps,10 litres of Dettol, detergents, toilet and bathroom cleaners , 60 kgs of groceries like rice, lentils, gram, nuts, oil, sugar, snacks, noodles stationery and hand towels.
