Ahmedabad, Sep 20 (UNI) Children of underprivileged and downtrodden from Ahmedabad will be flown around the city in an aircraft by Jet Airways on Saturday as part of 'Friends of the Children' project, initiated by a non-government organisation 'aProCh'.

''Eighty-five per cent street children from Ahmedabad will take a flight of fantasy with Jet Airways from Ahmedabad Airport. From the ground, from their humble surroundings, they have watched a flight take off up in the sky and wondered what it is like to be up there.

We can only imagine how their hopes and aspirations will soar with the flight of their dreams,'' aProCh project coordinator Kiran Sethi told reporters here today.

Talking about 'Friends of the Children' project, Ms Sethi said ''Children need to explore. They should have an opportunity to explore the avenues of their aspirations in life. Children need to experience. They should experience the sense of commitment required in conducting any business and not be passive observers. Children need inspiration. They can be inspired to aspire in the spirit of fun and entertainment.'' UNI
