Mr Bilal discussed about the initiative taken by Dr Rajesh Kumar to establish an organisation that can contribute to minimise the social evils such as drug abuse and domestic violence. He enlightened how their organisation has grown to the current position. He gave a detailed description of all the programmes run by their organisation for drug addicts, homeless and juveniles.
Furthermore, he elaborated the detailed schedule of juveniles and drug addicts. The whole day schedule starting with meditation, yoga, pledge assembly and learning classes really help the juveniles and drug addicts to improve their mental, social and physical health.Mr Bilal shared the details of the talking pen which is provided by them to each juvenile and drug addict under their supervision. This talking pen helps the illiterate juveniles and drug addicts to read, write and learn. This pen reduces their dependency on teacher. Finally, the session ends with the healthy conversation among students and SPYM official members.
After the interaction, there was a visit to SPYM centre for homeless children. The centre was located at Munirka, Delhi. Here, the donation of clothes, toys, books and water bottles was done. A motivational interaction with the children made the visit successful.
