Summer training camp begins
Bahrain Institute of Hospitality and Retail (BIHR) has joined hands with BHR4All to organise the first-of-its-kind summer camp for differently abled children. All participating students will have the chance to try a hand in painting, fitness, reading, writing, story telling, meditation, activities of daily living (ADL), using cutlery, laying a table, making a bed, customer service, painting, environmental protection, using money and conversation.
In a statement issued, BIHR said participants will be kept mentally and physically active by volunteers and trained Ministry of Interior Social workers to maintain the safety, security and comfort of the students. “This first-of-its-kind summer camp has been developed to meet the high demand for summer camps, where students with intellectual disability can be occupied, continue to learn, feel accomplished as invaluable members of society.
“The volunteers will be trained personnel with schools who will support as part of their activities.” Hatim Dadabai, Managing Director of Dadabai Holding and Bahrain Institute of Hospitality and Retail, said: “We are committed to continuously playing a significant role in recognising, supporting and addressing humanitarian, environmental and social needs in the Kingdom. To achieve these goals, we partner with various Non-Governmental Organisations (NGO’s) charitable societies and local associations.”
Nivedita Dhadphale, Founder BHR4All and CSRHeroes, pointed out: “Having worked closely with the differently abled and in particular with the Intellectually Disabled (ID), for almost four decades, I have gained the ability to ascertain the fundamental challenges and requirements of this vulnerable and voiceless community
