Chubby Cheeks Nursery, a popular Dubai based early education center has taken a lead to develop qualities in children that foster responsible citizens by planting and nurturing seeds of social responsibility in the hearts and minds of their toddlers through the year-round CSR activities.
Chubby Cheeks Nursery has motivated students and parents to come forward to collect relief supplies for the recent Chennai floods victims. The nursery collected relief supplies like blankets, towels, clothes, socks, jackets, brushes, diapers, slippers for the flood victims.
Parents and children are being encouraged to donate and once all the donations are collected, they will be sent off to an authorised relief fund.
Earlier in 2015 they conducted a donation drive for the Nepal earthquakes and the fire victims of Sharjah and Dubai. Roshi Tandon, Managing Director, Chubby Cheeks Nursery describes the concept of social responsibility among kids saying, "We take our corporate social responsibility very seriously. We firmly believe that if kids learn kindness, respect and empathy at a tender age it helps them become happier and successful adults; the act of serving others can be a powerful influence on positive character development. Moulding our kids to responsible global citizens is at the heart of Chubby Cheeks' mission".
"Chubby Cheeks Nursery is giving our next generation an opportunity to become morally intelligent by conducting frequent social and community events in the nursery which is fantastic", says Navjyoti Rana Thakur, mother of a student studying at Chubby Cheeks.
