Fr. Roger Jones sdb

WADALA, NOVEMBER 22, 2010: Our very first YaR Day was celebrated at Shelter Don Bosco. The program began with a prayer dance followed by a power point on the plight of children in various settings. In the first half of the day about thirty boys from Don Bosco School, Matunga came over to Shelter and entertained the children with their heart throbbing dances and meaningful skits and songs.

The second half of the day began with a cultural program. There were about two hundred children. Anmol girls from Vashi, neighboring children and the children from Bosco Ke Tare, Matunga gathered at Shelter Don Bosco for half a day of fun and frolic.

Fr. Ajoy Fernandes our Vice Provincial graced the occasion by his presence as our Chief Guest. Fr. Savio Silveira and Fr. Rosario too were present. Fr. Ajoy in his speech highlighted the words of the song from3-idiots “give me some sunshine, give me some rain, give me another chance I want to grow up once again.” He explained that Shelter, Development Office, and Anmol has given you a second chance and so make full use of all that is taught and grow in life. Fr. Ajoy also honored all the children by giving a bouquet of flowers to the youngest boy and a girl. It was a touching moment and children cheered with joy.

Sing song and filmy dances and games were the attractions of the evening. The day was concluded with tea and snacks.
