A Festive Day for Children of BCP Bangladesh School

Volunteers from the Bata Children’s Program (BCP) Bangladesh recently celebrated Eid al-Fitr, the biggest holiday in the country, with young students from their adopted school.

In the days leading up to the holiday, which began on June 25, BCP invited the children of the Mojar School in Dhaka to join them for an afternoon of fun at the head office of Bata Bangladesh.

Around 30 enthusiastic volunteers – including country manager Chitpan Kanhasiri and other members of senior management – showed up for the second such celebration since adopting the school last year.

As is customary in the local culture, the children were presented with new clothes, shoes and other accessories like watches and belts.

The children accepted them with great happiness, and their teachers, who are deeply dedicated to them, were delighted to see the children enjoying the moment so much.

Kanhasiri told the gathering, “It gives me immense pleasure to celebrate this occasion with these children, who are our extended family members and future assets of our society. I urge all my colleagues at Bata Bangladesh to celebrate the occasion with underprivileged children who live near them, to bring smiles to the faces of thousands of such children.”
