Patrick Corda

MUMBAI, BORIVALI, APRIL 18, 2011: The Students of Don Bosco Technical Training Institute have a bright future and a clear vision. To check the vision of the students of Sankap, MORD, Bosco Boys as well as the staff, the Institute organised an Eye Check-Up Camp on April 16, 2011, at Bosco Boys’ Home. Mrs. Abha Sharma of NAB (National Association For The Blind India) along with her team came to the Institute in the morning at 10.30 am where they were welcomed by Fr. Anthony Santarita, the Director of the Institute. The students and the Staff Mr. Dayanand, who organised the camp, appreciated the service the team provided, which was free of cost. He mentioned that a similar camp was arranged a year back by the same group. He also mentioned that the group was always ready to work for a social cause by reaching out to people who were underprivileged, marginalized, and with financial difficutlies.

In all, we had 130 students who got their eyes checked. They were happy that the Institute organized a camp like this. Madhuri Govalkar, a student from Sankalp, training in Hotel Management said, "I always wanted to go for an eye check up but never got the opportunity because of my college. The price of the spectacles was also high. When I got to know about this camp, I was happy. Anyhow I completed the test. I am grateful to the Institute that in-spite of the minimal fees that we pay for the training program; the other benefits are good too. I will always recommend to all my friends around to join this institute.”

The students were assured that all those who were recommended for spectacles would get it within a week. Mrs. Abha Sharma thanked Fr. Anthony Santarita, Dayanand Patil, and the Institute for the warm welcome, and for giving her organization and her team the privilege for rendering their services
