ANAVI has always believed in having celebrations with a difference. Be it any festival or our anniversary. Continuing the tradition of spreading cheer to the under privileged during the season of Durga Puja and Diwali, we organized our visits to two of the institutes that have long been part of the ANAVI family.

First up was Topsia Creche. ANAVI members visited the institute and distributed new clothes to the 30 odd children at the school. We have a long association with this institute since our early days. Every year during the Durga Puja we distribute a new set of clothes to the children there. The children studying there are from very poor backgrounds with parents working as day laborers and maids. Even a small gift brings sparkle in their eyes. Their gratitude is our gift.

Voice of World is another institute which has been doing remarkable work with the blind under privileged. ANAVI is proud to be associated with them and has helped them with infrastructure support, sponsorship of prizes at events organized by them and monthly rations of mustard oil.

This month, like every month, members visited the institute to hand over 75 litres of mustard oil

With an ultimate goal of making them self – sufficient, ANAVI is investing in long term and sustainable support to the institutes that we are associated with. Activities and visits are carried out on monthly basis and assessment done to ensure that progress is being made.

Support from doners and well-wishers have been instrumental in helping us on our path. Wishing all a very happy Diwali and Durga Puja from the team and from all whose lives have been touched.
