SHARJAH: Balloon International Nursery has observed the Universal Children’s Day, a day observed by worldwide fraternity to promote the Charter for the welfare of the children around the globe. The Sharjah-based nursery dedicated Nov.19 to call attention to the convention of the rights of the downtrodden and underprivileged children.

The Nursery commemorated the Children’s Day, as a time for reflection and personal evolution and also declaration to make the world a better place. It cherished this great day as a time for caring and sharing, and reflected that there is no greater happiness than helping those in need. This day is also a good time to get the house in order,  by disposing piles of clothes cluttering up in children’s wardrobe, or old books in the book shelf, and donating it so it can become a piece of treasure for the less fortunate.

As a part of its CSR activities, the nursery decided to use the Universal Children’s Day, to meet its quintessence with the concept of “One Man’s Trash is Other Man’s Treasure.” The Nursery also held a Recycle, Renew, and Reuse drive to help inculcate values of recycling and reusing things in the little minds. “Though smaller in size, but greater in spirits,” the tiny tots soared in heights and grew by leaps and bounds as they parted with their lovely toys, dear old books, inseparable old dolls and favorite old clothes for a good cause with their tender heart and hands. It was indeed a serene and rewarding experience to see the tiny tots getting involved with these activities, directly or indirectly to help disadvantaged children through Emirates Red Crescent and support various orphanages and schools around the globe.

The drive elicited tremendous response from the parents and well-wishers, and the nursery managed to garner more than what they had anticipated. It was a fulfilling and enriching experience for all as the proceeds were handed over to Emirates Red Crescent.

On the same day, as part of the Recycle, Renew and Reuse project, the Nursery held a “Pencil Drive Collection Drive,” under the patronisation of Venkat, the Pencil Man of UAE. K Venkatraman, collects used stationery and uniforms and ships them to poor kids in India.
