Anandha Deepavali is one of the major event organised for the less privileged children. Over 15 orphan homes join hands together under one roof to celebrate deepavali with immense joy and satisfaction and make it Anandha deepavali. The journey continues with abundance joy showered for the last 18 years.
“Deepavali celebration for those who cannot afford to celebrate” has been the theme behind celebrating Anandha Deepavali. Over the years your continuous participation in this celebration has helped transform lives of thousands of children, for whom education was not affordable. We bring together cheerful children from 15 orphan homes under one roof and along with spending the day with them, you get to feel the limitless happiness that you have brought to them. We utilize the fund generated to provide educational support to students.
We are celebrating 18th Anandha Deepavali with 1251 children. They will be given a custom-fit dress, sumptuous meal, sweets and a whole day of non-stop entertainment. The one-day festivity, feasting and fun will be on Saturday 24th October 2015 at Krishnaswamy Kalayana Mandapam, South Boag Road, T.Nagar, Chennai – 600017.
Event of such magnitude has been possible for 17 continuous years only because of generous support of the service-minded people like you. In addition to your valuable contribution, we request you to take your precious time out and talk to your colleagues,friends and relatives about us and Anandha Deepavali for getting their support.
