The airline’s Cabin Crew participated in the the same along with the students, which made for an interesting photo opportunity. Organised by Jet Airways, this event held every quarter, is part of the airline’s CSR initiative focusing on causes relating to child development and education in the community, in association with NGO Save the Children India.

Reliance Home Videos and Games (RHVG) supported the cause by sponsoring a popular brand of crayons ‘Crayola’ for a coloring activity, which displayed the artistic abilities of the young minds.
