by Father Vivian deSouza for BISMumbai

Don Bosco Vywasaik Prashshiksan Kendra, (DBVPK) Chinchwad celebrated Women’s Day on 8 March 2021. The female staff and students (numbering about 24) gathered in the auditorium, and had a session of sharing dreams and aspirations and how they could achieve the same.

There were a few interctive games, after which the guest of honour Father Briston Britto spoke to them about the challenges women face in society and the need to be strong and positive. Brother Damodar Wankhede and Father Vivian deSouza then wished the group and challenged the women to take bold steps in their training and career later on. Three of the female staff also spoke encouragingly about the joy of being a woman and how they could cope up with life and its challenges. Snacks were then distribued to all, before they dispersed.

The Social Work Department celebrated 'Women’s Day' in their bastis with an empowerment programme.
