Hoola hoopers from California conduct a two-day workshop at Jaipuria Institute of Management Noida.
On the 8th and 9th of December 2012, Jaipuria Noida took its students thorough a very important lesson; that entrepreneurship is something more than making money – it is the chance of being happy for life.
Carissa Caricato (from Hoola for Happiness) came to Jaipuria Institute of Management, Noida, all the way from California USA along with two of her colleagues. Over the next two days Carissa taught students of Jaipuria Noida how to hoola-hoop. Hoola Hoop is a simple sport that involves a toy hoop that is twirled around the waist, limbs or neck. She also explained how her organisation Hoola for Happiness, founded in July 2010, was bringing a smile to the less fortunate, orphans, and homeless.
Prior to starting Hoola for Happiness Carissa was the Marketing Director at Crisis Centre of Tampa Bay for nearly three-and-a-half years. After college Clarissa had visited Haiti in 2009, a country near United States, on a mission trip where she realized that the kids enjoyed hoola hooping very much. On returning to Florida she started taking Hoola dance classes. After that, she returned to Haiti numerous times.
“Hooping became my calling from God, and I quit my job, sold all my belongings to raise money, and started Hoola for Happiness.”
Through Carissa the student of Jaipuria Noida got to know the nitty-gritty of the working of a charity organisation. Finances were usually raised through donations. For accommodation, a family in the US was supporting her, while her trips to the 20 countries where Hoola for Happiness operates were being taken care of by her family member in the airlines industry. Carissa also takes dance classes to raise money. Her main ‘customers’ are churches, which organize mission trips and support the weaker sections of society.
“Clarissa made us realise that god has some reason behind sending her to India,” says a deeply inspired Priyanka Priya of Jaipuria Noida.“Indians enjoy hoola hooping as it is for all age and religion. We realised that Hoola hooping has become Clarissa’s way of connecting with people who do not speak her language.”
In India, Clarissa is connected to the Good News Centre in Ranchi, which has a church and a college and does a lot of social work. This two-day workshop yet again established Jaipuria Institute of Management as a leading innovator in business education, inspiring students to search within themselves their purpose in life.Read more
