The Community Connect Project
“There is nothing more beautiful than someone who goes out of their way to make life beautiful for others.”
A Community is a group of individuals connected to each other by one or more attribute(s). The element that links them together is at the core, and is the essence of the group. Just as denoted by the root and the suffix of the word (common-unity), a certain segment of the population is united by a familiar thread. A community is a recognizable strand used to bring people together to advocate and support each other in the fight to overcome those threats. As human beings, we need a sense of belonging, and that sense of belonging is what connects us to the many relationships we develop.

It is a great initiative taken by the college authorities and the students. They blessed the DTC family and asked us to pay them another visit soon. Before this, our students had never been to an old age home, so we were wondering what it would be like. The inmates were very hospitable and friendly, and they welcomed us with their beautiful smiles. Though we spent only a few hours with them, they made us realize the value of our grandparents and the tenderness with which we need to take care of them. The children realized that love for their family, particularly their grandparents has grown stronger and deeper. It was really a poignant experience for all the students to visit the old age home and interact with its inmates. This visit was a huge learning experience for the young citizens and after spending only a few hours with them, the students vowed to do something for senior citizens and contribute towards the betterment of their condition.
