Yuva Goonj NGO Club of IILM Gurgaon ushered in 2017 with a celebration for the slum kids. Yuva Goonj have been running a school for Basic Education, “Pathshala” for these children and today they are like an extended family with the number rising to a 100. This New Year we planned to celebrate with these children who awaits us regularly for their evening classes. Their enthusiasm, spirit fills each with joy and gaiety. The experience is exhilarating. We had cut a cake and distributed clothes and small gifts which was donated by each student, staff and faculty of the institute. The kids then presented their talents. It was wonderful to see them so disciplined and well mannered. The Yuva Goonj team has been putting in a lot of hard work, and it is visible from the growth of the number of participants in the school.
