On the day, BCP volunteers, wearing traditional clothing, welcomed the children from the BCP Bangladesh-adopted school to the offices of Bata Bangladesh. The children took part in a variety of cultural activities and received traditional gifts from those present to thank them for their participation. Volunteers and employees joined the children in the festive celebrations, with prizes awarded for the best-dressed female and the best-dressed male employee.
The children and volunteers then enjoyed a selection of traditional sweets and savory snacks together, and the teachers of Mojar School were delighted to see their students enjoying themselves, whole-heartedly thanking BCP for including them in the celebration.
The program ended with company manager of Bata Bangladesh Chitpan Kanhasiri cutting a special cake with the children, where he wished all those present “Subho NoboBorsho,” meaning “Happy New Year” in Bengali. He also expressed confidence that the team would be able to achieve the goals set for the year, and stressed the importance of celebrating such occasions with these children, in order to put smiles on their faces.
