Diya Event 2018

An occasion to celebrate victory over defeat, light over darkness, awareness over ignorance. An occasion to celebrate Life itself!

This Diwali, Care For You, Ahmednagar is making it more special. A “ Paint a Diya” event was organised for 75 orphan girls on the 13th and 14th of October, 2018, where the girls beautifully painted 10,000 diya’s.

A feat only surpassed by the inclusion of differently-abled girls who joyously participated and contributed.

The girls were divided into groups and given sets of vibrant colours. The visually challenged girls were assigned the task of applying whitewash on the diya’s which were then handed over to the rest of the team to be turned into aesthetically painted lamps.

Our volunteers as usual stepped up to encourage and cajole the girls. They helped package the diya’s and also spoke about their experiences along with the rest of the orphan children.

This diyas will be sold and the proceeds will be utilised in bringing a modicum of comfort to these children’s lives.

This Diwali illuminates and spreads the joy of light by touching their hearts.
