The joy of Giving | Diwali Donation Drive
“I have heard that there can be light even after sundown. Is it really true...?"
Thanks for the continuous supports to the Joy of Giving drive from past few years.
We Invite all our Beaters to join us for Sweets and Ration Distribution on 15th November 2020.
After successful campaigns every year in Diwali, This time we are planning to distribute sweets at Salape, Kalakarai Wadi, Thakurwadi (Near Karjat) and surrounding hamlets. With every approaching night, plunged is the community into darkness, for want of access to basic necessities.
Being in the remote lands and unavailability of light for almost 10-12 hours has adversely impacted the villagers here. Lack of light hinders access to any productive work. While the adults try and finish the household chores during the day time, the children usually play or sleep very early. Once nightfall, there is no possible avenue for working on anything. This one of the reasons people migrate to cities in the hope of a better livelihood opportunity.
What we have done until now in Joy of Giving - Donation Drive?
A few of us came together in 2013 to support these villagers. In the last couple of years, we collected old clothes, toys, furniture that can be reused from all over Maharashtra. And distributed the same on the occasion of
Diwali. The tag line has always been "aap iss Diwali kise khush karenge" and “Joy of Giving”.
This year we hope to provide a “Ray of Light” to the community by providing solar lanterns. As the name suggests, these lanterns run on solar energy. The product is extremely easy to use and has no maintenance cost. The lantern is specially designed for rural and semi-urban communities, providing light for about 8-10 hours. At sunrise, it can be charged again. Join us on this journey of light.
