In a major step towards tackling child poverty, the UK’s Charities Commission approved Arrows Group’s application to register the Foundation as a charity. Following a lengthy vetting process and due diligence, the Commission officially entered The Arrows Group Foundation onto the Register of Charities with its Registered Charity Number (1163325).
Mentoring Programme & Office Visit – Smiles All Around!
As part of the Foundation’s employment-readiness initiatives, we were privileged to welcome to our Gurgaon office some of the girls from the Udayan Care home that we support. The visit is part of a series of mentoring programs for the older kids that will run until the end of the calendar year, focused on employment skills, career focus, and building confidence in them. In parallel, we are ready to sign the corporate mentoring program with school going kids who will visit our Gurgaon offices on a Friday and receive mentoring on a topic of their choice.
After a traditional Indian welcome with garlands of flowers, we showed the girls around the office and then set up a VC with Adrian and Naveen to (hopefully!) inspire and motivate them. Truth be told, it was the other way round and they continue to inspire us with their positive attitude and outlook, and remind us of why we’re doing this.
