One more day added to the celebrations of our lives. One more event of Sapney where we had smiles all around us and we were smiling as well. Many smiles added to the faces of kids who enjoyed the event and many more dreams fulfilled with small effort of Sapney Team.
If you missed it by chance, here is the details of what happened on 6th Of October, 2012 at Saraswati Vihar Slum area.
Painted with Love
We actually started off a bit early this time, by getting the venue painted a few days before the event. The venue was not in a very nice condition when we first visited the place a week before the event. It was full of damp marks , paint falling off the walls and bricks were clearly visible through the washed off paint. The blackboard too was not in condition where on the teacher could write a word. With the efforts and contribution of the members we were able to get the venue painted for Rs 3500 by Bhagvan Das Ji, who is the resident of same slum area. In this peak time before Diwali any painter would have asked Rs 5000-6000 for the task, but we could somehow negotiate with the person who painted, as 3 of his kids were also studying at the center. The teacher, Mrs Shashi Ji was a great help in helping us contact the painter. She also contributed in getting the venue painted by being there at the venue when the work was on, and scheduling the classes accordingly. All the members who were there appreciated the paint job being done.
We made it magical. Literally !
Yes, its true that we created magic this time which, the kids and the members are sure to remember for long time. The magician Mr Mahesh was star of the show. He was so cooperative and engaging . He made sure that all the kids participated in making magic happen. He asked for Rs 1700 for a show of 30 minutes. Whenever he performed a trick, kids exclaimed by saying a very poetic, waoooooow. He taught kids a simple tissue paper magic, which was a learning for us as well. Thanks to Rhythm Jain and Abhishek Dhingra for contributing and making magic happen.
This time we had lots of stuff to give. So much so that the kids were actually finding it tough to carry it while going home ( We helped and made sure nothing felt off their little hands). While leaving the venue the kids had a bright colored packed toy, clothes suitable to their age and gender, a notebook, crayon colors, a pencil, a pack of chips and a lot of memories to cherish. The stuff was contributed by Shemrock Play School ( Pitampura ), Anjali Gupta, Aman Deep Singla, Megha Gupta, Sumit Chawla,Bhawna Aneja, Yukti Tuli, Vabhav Wadhavan, Pallavi Tandon, Megha Chitkara. (Please let us know if somehow we have missed any name.)
This is not the end as there is lot more to it. Thanks to Pooja Aggarwal for contributing the blackboard / whiteboard which will help kids learn in better way. To further decorate the walls of the center, kanika Kalra had charts of “parts of body”, “animals”, “ABC” and “Hindi alphabets”.I must mention here that Kanika have been playing much bigger role at the events ever since. Kanika along with Anshu, Priyanka, Bhavna, Megha Gupta, Sumit Chawla started interacting with kids and made them dance, laugh, share jokes, poems and had a blast. Thanks to Sumit Chawla, Ankit Mittal, Aadhar, Bhawna and Sunny for clicking lovely pics and capturing the magic moments in their cameras.
