SHILLONG: On the occasion of Deepawali, SPARK organized a special programme for the underprivileged children with the prime objective to brighten the lives of these less privileged children.
As Deepawali signifies the festival of lights, through this little initiative, we intend to bring light into the lives of these children and provide them a platform where they can enjoy to the fullest and forget all the burdens on their tender shoulders. Diwali also signifies the end of Evil and Rise of Goodness.
SPARK hopes that this Diwali ends all the evil and brings goodness and positivity in the lives of all especially these underprivileged and distressed children.
The Additional Superintendent of Police, East Khasi Hills District, Shillong Supria Das was p;resnt on the occasion. She also spoke on COVID 19 protocols to be strictly followed for the safety of the children as well as their dear ones. She also provided light refreshment to the children and gifted them some clothes.
During the celebration, lamps were lit by the children, who also recited a prayer asking for God's blessing and support.
Altogether 100 children participated in the programme at Bara Bazaar Slum and Rangmen Centres of SPARK maintaining proper distancing.
"The programme brought real happiness among these children which is indeed a great achievement for us," said Shima Modako -- founder & resident, SPARK-Bringing Light to Lives, Meghalaya.
