SHILLONG, Oct 30: On the occasion of Deepawali, SPARK took the initiative to organize a programme for the underprivileged children with the prime objective to make them enjoy the festival and experience it as they hardly get an opportunity to witness such occasion as they have to work to support their families and in the process, their precious childhood is lost.

During the celebration, lamps were lit by the children with a strong believe that its light will bring brightness in the life of every child. Children recited a prayer asking for God’s blessing and support. Other attractions of the programme were some games, dance performance and other recreatiol activities. The children also made colourful rangoli and burnt some child-friendly noiseless crackers under the care of teachers. Thereafter, food was provided to all the children. Altogether more than 200 children participated in the programme both at Anjali and Rangmen Centre of SPARK.
