Sharing a Smile on Independence Day
The highest form of humaneness is compassion – with emphasis on the fact that meaning of compassion is understood correctly. Compassion, where respect is integral aside of empathy or sympathy.
This Independence Day, August 15, 2013 Gemstoneuniverse had the good fortune to be a part of celebrations at the WARDS school, Bangalore. WARDS or Welfare Association for Rehabilitation of Disabled and Society – is a non profit organisation that promotes understanding, acceptance and full community inclusion for persons with disabilities. WARDS is the brain child of Mr. C.M.Kathavarayan, the principal of the school, who himself is visually impaired but far outdoes people, with the vision he has for individuals with disabilities.
Gemstoneuniverse was a co-sponsor of the celebrations and also presented need based materials and special teaching aids to the school.
It was immensely inspiring and humbling at the same time to see the happiness that dwells at this special needs school. And the readiness and enthusiasm with which amazingly synchronised dance and music pieces were presented by the school children. Here are a few glimpses from the event.
WARDS school is located in Jeevanbhimanagar, Bangalore. You can read more about the school at www.wardsbengaluru.org. Please join hands to mobilize any kind of support or participation.
