Hyderabad May 21: Honourable Central Minister for Labour and Employment Sri Bandaru Dattatreya visited Don Bosco Navajeevan home, Nampally on 20th May 2015 as part of Swatch (clean) Hyderabad programme. Along with him there were also Mr Vinay IAS officer and other nodle officers present. He was very much friendly and interacted with our children. He is keen to know our activities and appreciated the work done by us.
On the third day of the programme i.e., 20th May 2015, respected minister visited the area where our home for the street involved children located i.e. Bazarghat. The officers prior to it visited our home and selected for his interaction with the children. During his 20 minutes interaction with the children, he was very much friendly. Since we are having only summer camp for the elementary school level students, there were about 35 children.
The Honourable Minister asked one of the children to explain the daily activites of the home. Master Sai quickly explained the daily programme. He also asked the children how did they reached Don Bosco Navajeevan home, and all of them said that they ran away from home because of the poverty and their aim is to continue studies. Minister was taken up when the children said that they are taken care well and provided all that they are in need.
We also appealed him for the needs of the institution. Water problem is one of the main problems that the institution is facing immediately. We made a request to sanction a bore well for the institution. Another request we proposed him to sanction a 10 quintals of rice and transport Vehicle for children to go to different schools. He was positive and asked IAS officer to look into the request made by us.
Let us thank Sr. Victoria, In-charge of Nampally home for taking special interest in meeting the officers and speaking to them the requirements of the home. As the Minister was leaving the home, Fr Bellamkonda Sudhakar, Director thanked the Union Minster and all the other Government officials for visiting Don Bosco Navajeevan home and blessing the children with their presence.
