Buddy IN is project started by National Council For Social Services. The objective of the program is to provide a platform through various indoor and outdoor activities for Metta students and ITE College East students to build friendship. This is the 3rd year of the project. The V3 students are involved.
Some of the enriching activities includes:
The students will be creating awareness of the Purple Parade in October, where they will help to distribute flyers on Purple Parade and they will join the carnival on the actual day.
This is a good initiative as students open up to each other and overcome the fear of making friends. During the activities, students understand that building friendship is putting in effort and with the right values and attitude, and others will easily be their friends.
