CSR Hinduja Global Solutions organizes a dog therapy campaign at Govt. Schools in Bangalore
250 employees volunteer to sensitize 600 beneficiaries
As a part of HGS’ CSR volunteering program – Work to Give, CSR Hinduja Global Solutions (HGS) organizes a dog therapy campaign – Pals and Paws at 10 government schools and Divya Downs Development Trust (an NGO working for Children with Down Syndrome) in Bangalore.
In this campaign, multiple workshops are being organized for 600 children at the schools including GHPS Bilekahalli, GHPS Garvebhavipalya, and GHPS Parangipalya, over a period of just about 2 weeks, ending January 31, 2020.
HGS has invited the professional expertise of Karthik Ramasubramanian, a young entrepreneur and canine behaviorist for the workshops, who alongside 250 HGS volunteers, will sensitize government school students aged between 10-14.
The aim of this campaign is to spread awareness about the concept of ‘Therapy Dogs’ sensitize children towards animal welfare and help them to urge their fear of dogs. ‘Therapy Dog’ is a popular concept utilized in the rehabilitation of special children. Karthik encouraged the students to play catch and other interactive games with Cleo and Coco – the therapy dogs and within the process addressed the objectives of the session. The children openly expressed their enthusiasm and delight at having Cleo and Coco as pals.
