World Telecommunications Day Celebrations
On the second Sunday of this month, on 8th May 2016, CIRCs across the country celebrated Mother’s Day with great fervour. From conducting special digital literacy sessions for mothers of the community to conducting health awareness meetings, a myriad of activities were conducted as a part of the celebrations. At few centres, children recited poems and songs and wrote messages dedicated to their mothers, while fun games for mothers were conducted at few centres. Painting and poster making competitions were also held in honour of Mother’s Day. Other thoughtful attempts made to observe Mothers Day included talks on prevention of child marriage, which is also major step taken towards healthy and safe motherhood.
