Shelter Don Bosco, an institution which takes care of street children is celebrating 25 years of their existence. This institution, situated at Wadala, takes care of street children, rehabilitates them and gives them a purpose to live. In short, they give these rootless, roofless children an identity of their own. Many down the years now have families of their own.
On March 2, 2013, they will be culminating their Silver Jubilee celebrations with a Musical Concert at Shanmukhananda Auditorium, Sion. As part of the Silver Jubilee Celebrations, Urvashi Sharma Joshi and Sachiin Joshi recently held a screening of their production Mumbai Mirror at IMAX, Wadala, for these boys.
Sachiin Joshi who portrays Abhijeet Patil in MUMBAI MIRROR and the man behind the ‘Yes’ to the screening of the film was present at the interval and he spent a good half-hour chatting with the enthusiastic boys and telling them that what they see on screen should not be emulated.
He was especially referring to the violence. The boys were all over Sachiin (as is evident in the pictures) and he left with a promise of seeing them again.
Speaking with Fr Roger Jones, director of Shelter Don Bosco, Sachiin expressed his thanks for the good work that they were doing. He was even surprised when Fr Roger explained to him how boys from Shelter have gone ahead and become successful in life with families of their own. Some even run their own business, he explained. Martin D’Souza, a journalist and past pupil of Don Bosco is helping out this institution with this entire event.
