At ProDT Consulting Services, our core values extend beyond the realm of business; they encompass a deep-seated commitment to our community and a dedication to fostering positive change. This ethos was vividly brought to life when we had the privilege of participating in a special fun fair organised at a local school for autistic children. For us, this event transcended the usual bounds of corporate social responsibility ā€“ it was a heartfelt endeavour to bring smiles, create a space of joy, and promote inclusivity.

The Abhisar Foundation, based in Pune, is a committed entity that focuses on nurturing children and adults on the autism spectrum. On the 26th of December 2023, the foundation opened its doors wide to a heart-warming gathering, hosting a Fun 'n' Fair event that extended a warm invitation to friends, family, and loved ones. The event was filled with enjoyable games, delicious food, and stalls held by children of all ages. Sanjeev Lalwani, MD at ProDT, had the incredible opportunity of attending this event. Other ProDT members attended the event too.

Autism, a spectrum with a myriad of experiences, often requires a tailored approach to social engagement and learning. Understanding this, our involvement in the fun fair was more than just about setting up activities; it was an exercise in empathy, innovation, and adaptability. We aimed to create an environment where these wonderful kids could feel comfortable, valued, and free to express themselves in a setting that resonates with their unique perspectives.

At the event, there were a range of different activities, and we were able to engage in most of them. They incorporated delightful activities devised by the children, featuring a variety of games that included a guessing challenge to determine under which cup a coin was hidden and creative puzzles involving matchsticks.

Our participation in this event was a powerful reminder of the joy that comes from inclusivity and understanding. It underscored our belief that every child deserves a chance to experience the magic of childhood, regardless of their developmental differences. This fun fair was a step towards creating a more inclusive world, where children with autism are not just acknowledged but are celebrated for their unique strengths and abilities.
