Don Bosco Past pupils’ meet was held at DON BOSCO PYaR, Gulbarga, on 17 April 2010. Don Bosco PYaR has been working with the child laborers and street and working children of Gulbarga for the past eight years in multifarious ways; evening tuition centers, Residential Bridge Course (RBC) for child laborers, Thousand Follow Up (Follow up program for the mainstreamed child laborers), street presence, CHILDLINE and MISSING CHILD BUREAU. The event was organized in an innovative and interactive manner so as to facilitate the rapport between the children and the staff.
About 400 children from fourteen neighbouring villages and from the city took part in the programme. The children and staff remembered with gratitude the services rendered by Fr. K.J. Joseph, the outgoing Director. The interactive session and lunch were followed by a cultural program. Fr. Pius John and Fr. Prasad and the staff members of Don Bosco PYaR were present for the program.
