In a continued effort to contribute to society, volunteers from the CSR Team of the Gurugram office of Sapient, a global services company that helps clients transform in the areas of business, marketing and technology, and operates three divisions that enable clients to gain a competitive advantage and succeed in an increasingly digital world. The company has operations in North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. They enthusiastically participated in the rugby match which was organised in collaboration with the genuine efforts of Divya Jyoti Jagriti Sansthan, an international, socio-spiritual and a non-profit organisation. This NGO leaves no stone unturned when it comes to encouraging the unprivileged children of the society. One of its social initiatives, Manthan, a Holistic Education Program is a unique educational initiative enlivening the true philosophy of education for societal development which truly supports this cause. It works on building an overall character of a child through holistic education. It also focuses on empowering students through initiatives, like capacity building, health care, nutrition, field visits and establishing a connection with his divine existence that rests in spirituality.
The CSR team of Sapient Gurugram proudly displayed their team spirit and the culture of giving by offering 12 volunteers and 67 children from their organisation. There were 8 Manthan volunteers from DJJS who also actively engaged in this match. The exceptional guidance and support of the 2 rugby coaches from the Rugby Delhi Lions Club not only helped the participants improve their sports skill but also set a positive environment of learning and development. The match was conducted in Gurugram on 22nd July, 2016.
Overall, it was a successful event as the common philosophy of DJJS and Sapient aim to open the doors to encouraging children who do not have access to the fancy playgrounds in order to exercise their skill as a sports person.
