At Mumbai Smiles, we have been very fortunate to have very benevolent partners, such as the Courtyard Marriott, who time and again, support us with our various projects. This year as well, Marriott partnered with us earlier this year to distribute free Sanitary Napkins and Dry Fruits for our girls of Life Skills Empowerment project and last month, we came together again for the Girl Child Education project.
To celebrate the Joy of Giving week, together we zeroed down upon one of our partner schools, which was in maximum need of financial and logistical assistance for their school and so the 4-day activity to celebrate this solidarity occasion was conducted in Savitribai Phule Girls School as it was in dire need to maintain its school hall for curricular and extra-curricular activities and severely lacked financial aid.
The activity lasted four days wherein a team of staff from Courtyard Marriott ideated for the designs to be done and then painted the school hall walls with messages and artwork on our annual theme of Girl Child Education.
One of the team members from Courtyard Marriott, Ms. Jyoti Subhedar said “It is beautiful activity completed by the combined efforts of Courtyard Marriott and Mumbai Smiles Foundation and we are very happy with the results, because this hall was in bad condition and the poor financial condition was the biggest issue for the school to paint it and maintain it. But now more activities and events can be organized for the students by the school in this hall. Even the students will enjoy their lectures when held here.” Thank you Courtyard Marriott and the team of Ms. Subhedar for this lovely initiative for the students and the school; this will definitely encourage the students to be more hardworking and creative in their curriculum and additional activities.
