The students of Seth M.R. Jaipuria played a friendly football match along with the students of Navsrijan as a part of the Design For Change initiative, on Thursday, August 29, 2019.
The mainstream students of class 9 (girls) and the Navsrijan students (girls) intermixed their team and all of them gave a splendid performance. Students like Rauhinetra, Samridhi, Bushra, Laxmi, and Nandini put their best foot forward and emerged as star players for the match.
Seth M.R. Jaipuria is proud of its DFC initiative which gives our students the opportunity to overcome social barriers and be more compassionate towards the less privileged section of the society. The projects under the DFC programme allow them to make efforts towards making our Navsrijan students feel more Inclusive, thereby bridging the social gap.
After the game, our Navsrijan students shared their experiences regarding the match. For some girls, it was their first formal football match and they felt a lot more confident after playing the game. Another student Gayatri of Navsrijan pointed out how this game gave them an opportunity to learn new techniques from each other.
