Actor-producer John Abraham on Thursday attended the 15th annual day function of an institution for differently abled children and said it’s “very inspiring to see the children” and that he would like to “spend time” with them in future.
He attended “Swayam Sidhha” at Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan School (MBCN) in Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
“I am happy to come to MBCN School and meet the children here. I would like to congratulate the management and staff of MBCN School for encouraging the children,” Abraham said in a statement.
Captain Sardar Singh of Delhi Waveriders, Hockey India League, joined the Madras Cafe actor at the event. “It is something that I would remember for a long time. It is very inspiring to see the children here,” Singh said.
The special children of MBCN School put up a show for parents and guests on the theme — Girl child and woman empowerment via dance dramas symbolising the rights and equality of women in the society.
“It is our earnest task to make a difference to the lives of the children and make them physically, socially and financially independent,” said Vandana Sharma, principal, MBCN School.
“With the school completing 15 years this year, it is a satisfying experience to see that so many children are today self-equipped because their parents understood that they are different and nurtured them along with the teachers and staff at the School.”
The students of the school also prepared gift hampers for Singh and Abraham.
Last year four students of the school were awarded medals at the Special Olympics in Australia.
