Seminar on 'The Joy of Being A Toybanker' at NMIMS

22 December, 2011 Mumbai. Students of Juhu based NMIMS- Mukesh Patel School of Technology, Management & Engineering (MPSTME) and Usha Pravin Gandhi College of Management recently held a seminar “The Joy of being a Toybanker” in association with Toybank, an NGO which aims to provide underprivileged children with toys which are instrumental in giving these children the luxury of having a childhood filled with playtime and the joy of possessing toys.

 
Eminent television personality Mr. Purab Kohli came to encourage students for the nobal initiative and spoke at length about the heart warming experiences he has had with Toybank. He said, “I have been a part of Toybank since its birth. It is not only about internal satisfaction obtained by giving happiness to poor kids, but also about giving back to the society what you have gained.” He also added that “Toybank is not just helping the poor kids, but also provides a channel to the young and privileged people to attain internal satisfaction.” 
 
Mr. Purab Kohli also appreciated the tremendous results Ms. Shweta Gopalachari’s hard work has brought about. Ms. Shweta who is the founder of “Toybank” is a pass out of D.J. Sanghivi College of Engineering, Mumbai, who along with some of her friends started this NGO around 8 years back. Now, Toybank has its branch in a number of cities of India. 
 
The seminar concluded with the Mr. Purab Kohli inspiring everyone to be a Toybanker. The participating volunteers were really very enthusiastic and keen to participate in the collection drives and were eager to be a part of Toybank. One of the participants, on the spot called her school principal and arranged for the collection drive in her school. 
 
After the seminar, all the students were provided with details how the toy collection drive would be carried out and where the collected toys have to be submitted. It was decided that MPSTME and UPG will independently carry out the drive in their colleges and decide a common place to hold the event after collection is done. The dates and the venue are yet to be decided. 
 
This seminar formed a founding stone for carrying out various Toybank events where all the SVKM colleges put their efforts together to emerge a better life for small underprivileged children.
