G4S celebrates Happy Day in India
New Delhi/Gurgaon, March 3rd, 2011: G4S INDIA, the largest private Security Solutions Group in the country has been at the forefront of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives aimed at enriching the society in which we operate. In its endeavour to contribute towards the society, G4S ‘Happy Day’ was celebrated today, on March 3, 2011 with over thousands of underprivileged children from different NGOs in India.
This is an annual initiative of G4S and is celebrated across all major cities in India and 21 countries across the world. In NCR, G4S celebrated this year’s HAPPY DAY at Gymkhana Club, Gurgaon with the theme of ‘Disneyland’. G4S executives and their families joined in to bring happiness to the little guests and bring moments of joy with the sole purpose of infusing positive thoughts and energy in them.
A number of fun filled activities and rides were planned for the kids including toy trains, bunjee jumping, castle bouncy, magic shows, tattoo painting, bouncy castles, hoopla games, camel ride, face painting, puppet show, ring games and other activity stalls. An elaborate menu of lunch and breakfast was specially created keeping the kid’s taste in mind.
On this occasion, children were invited from several established NGOs and associations taking care of mentally-challenged, orphans and children with limited means including Tihar Jail Crèche, Hope Foundation and SOS Greenfields Village.
Sharing G4S commitment to children and society, Mr. Neil Prasad, Regional Managing Director, South Asia said, “Philanthropy is the greatest social practice of G4S. A tradition set by royalty; it is natural that corporate houses should follow it with alacrity, working with charitable foundations, educational and healthcare institutions and trusts for development works for communities. Doing good for the community that we live in and helping those in need, is so good for the conscience and it is a culture we believe in, at G4S.
We are proud to harness the power of G4S values, with the aim to help these children to cross the bridge of divide and enter a world of their dreams. Happy Day is part of our ongoing endeavour internationally to contribute to the society in every way possible and what better than supporting children.”
On the occasion, Mr. Daniel C. Ryan, Regional CEO – Asia & Middle East, G4S added, “On the 3rd of March every year, G4S employees, along with many family members, add a day of happiness with their personal involvement in the lives of less privileged children. Each year, we put in extra effort to make a difference for thousands of children on this special occasion. Happy Day is part of our ongoing endeavour internationally to contribute to the societies in which we work.
Thank you in advance for joining together again this year to celebrate this exciting event, and for bringing a little joy to the lives of our little guests and importantly for putting smiles on their faces.”
Talking about this initiative, Ms. Mansi, VP – Marketing, G4S said, “Happy Day is G4S’s annual presentation of its commitment to society and way of repaying the community by helping underprivileged children and orphans. On this day, we intend to give a fun filled day to the children who are less fortunate.”
