The school of EEE observed International Women’s Day by visiting Missionaries of Charity, Mother Theresa’s Home for the sick and dying destitute .There were 130 residents in the home. Most of them were abandoned and destitute. Few elders are very sick and mentally challenged.

The staff and students were grouped and each group was assigned with an elderly women and they had a short conversation.

The students were given the task of conducting a small survey. Following questions were asked to the elderly women in the home:

  • How should women be strong in the society?
  • What makes you feel positive about life?
  • Who is an achiever according to you?
  • What is your advice to young women?

The students were able to understand the pain of the elderly women and their loneliness which gave a paradigm shift in the way each girl was looking at life.

The students performed for the elders, few of the elders joined the students and merrily danced to the tunes.Lunch was served for all the residents. Medicines were contributed for three months as per their requirement.
