Spreading the Light of Wisdom…

(Submitted by a well-wisher and supporter of Door Step School – Ms. Sayali Kulkarni)

“Diwali is the festival of light, and light signifies wisdom.” –  H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar

The children and Staff of Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Bal Mandir (SSRBM), Bavdhan, Pune believe that a festival is celebrated only when we can share the joy with people around us. We may make some delicious Diwali sweets but if we have no one to enjoy them with it is no celebration.

We at SSRBM Bavdhan decided to make beautiful Diwali lanterns to sell and raise money in order to make Diwali special for others.

The children, their teachers and other staff members put in their time and effort whilst the parents supported this wonderful project by buying these beautiful handmade lanterns.

We are very pleased to announce that raised amount will be using to buy books for the children of Primary ZP School, Abdagirewadi, Tal- Phaltan, Dist- Satara.

Most of the children of this school come from  poor families where the father, mother & other members are working on daily wages.

We brought the books from the Door Step School NGO. Special thanks to Mandarji Shinde & team for great, quick support.

It was really great moment to see happy faces with big- eager eyes of lovely kids.

This way SSRBM, Bavdhan team were able to support not one but two best causes.

Happy Diwali to you all.

(Door Step School thanks Ms. Sayali Kulkarni and SSRBM team for spreading the light of wisdom among children from Abdagirewadi ZP School. We are happy to see the brightened faces of children enjoying our books and teaching aids.)
