The World Food Day 2018

On 16th October 2018, The World Food Day was celebrated with great enthusiasm at Saifiyah Girls School.

Our children understand that sharing is caring. Love for humanity and compassion for mankind has been inculcated in them. This event promoted awareness and the need for action amongst the student to help those who are underprivileged. They also got insight into the necessity of a healthy and clean diet.

The children of grade IX and X started the day with interesting presentations and skit on reducing food wastage and on helping the poor, followed by speeches and clips delivering strong messages. They spent the morning fruitfully learning about hunger, starvation and insufficient food supply. They developed ideas on how to eradicate hunger and poverty from the world realizing the importance of food and countless blessing they have been gifted with by Allah TA.

The children were also shown a video clip of Aqa Maula’s (TUS) bayan regarding Roti preparation and the number of skills and people involved in making roti.

The event also reminded the children of innumerous bounties of our beloved Aqa Moula, Syedna Mufaddal Saifuddin (T.U.S) who, under the irshadaat and vision of 52nd Dai Syedna Mohammed Burhanuddin RA, started Faizul Muwaid Ul Burhaniyah so that no Momin sleeps with an empty stomach. FMB all around the world is serving Momineen showering countless barakat and bringing everybody on the same platform when it comes to food. Its goal is to achieve zero hunger ratio in the Bohra community.

Class VI presentation on Fraction was icing on the cake which stated that it is only a small fraction for you that you give to others but for them it is whole.

To carry the event further, Home Science students from grades XI under the guidance of their teacher Ms. Umme Aiman prepared Biryani in the school for the needy. Then girls from grade X helped in packing and distribution of Biryani boxes. Realizing the hardships and difficulties poor people face especially in the hot Karachi weather, they even collected a sum of money to buy water and juices which along with the biryani boxes were distributed to poor and homeless people near the school areas.

SGS is grateful towards the roti khidmat offered by Sakina ben Shabbir bhai Mamujiwala and Masooma ben Mohsin bhai Salimwala. Under their help, guidance and support, girls from grade VIII prepared roti’s too.

Grade VII prepared posters which underlined the needs of serving the people in need and reducing food wastage.

Grade IV celebrated the day by preparing some healthy food in their activity class which could be served at breakfast, dinner and lunch time.

Children celebrated the day with great enthusiasm developing basic skills. World Food Day was the best platform to raise awareness of food scarcity and problems, amongst our children of SGS. They understood, agreed and supported the mission of this year’s UN goal, “Working for zero hunger towards 2030″.
