A social movement of like minded people was created by those who believe that they can make a difference in the lives of the marginalized and the undeserved.
A grand function was organized at the Institute Menezes Braganza hall in Panaji, Goa on 27th January, 2018. The invitees included Industrialists, Politicians, Hoteliers, Bureaucrats and Alumni of Don Bosco all of whom were a mix of existing and potential donors.
Mr. Michael Lobo, the Dy. Speaker of Goa Legislative Assembly, MLA and Chairman of NGPDA was the Chief Guest at the function. The Provincial of INP Province, Fr. Felix Fernandes, along with other Fathers of the province, graced the function.
There was a lot of bonhomie and camaraderie enjoyed by existing and potential benefactors at the function, amidst the cultural items staged by the beneficiaries of the various Projects of KDS.
Auctions of food items and handicrafts were held, as part of the fund raising activity at the venue. These items were prepared by the Self Help Groups and the Children that are benefiting from our projects across the Province.
Mr. Michael Lobo applauded the work done by KDS and stressed on the point that the ‘Right advice at the right time shapes a child’s future.’ He also launched the Donation Box that will be placed at vantage locations at tourist hotels and reception areas.
