Festivals/customs/social activities:
India is known for its multicultural and rich tr
aditions and Customs. These celebrations are quite different in each religion. People of different caste, creed and religion live in harmony. Some of the prominent festivals are Ganesh Chathurthi, Ugadi -New Year of Hindus and Deepavali - Festival of lights. Christmas & Easter are celebrated by the Christians and Ramzan, Bakrid are celebrated by the Muslims. Climatically in general the area is pleasant with three seasons - summer, rainy and winter.

To implement all the above programs we have qualified and dedicated staff with aims- objectives and goals to develop the rural children and their families. Due to the loving sacrifice of our various Sponsors, we have been able to reach out some extent to the poorest of the poor.

What we have achieved is little, there is more to do and it is only possible through the generous and good hearted people. Whatever your contribution will help these unfortunate children, backward families and the most vulnerable segments of the society to live a normal and better life. We assure you our sincere gratitude and prayers for your sacrifice and contribution. May God bless you all.
A big Thank you and best wishes.
