Anandha Deepavali 2019
About Anandha Deepavali
Anandha Deepavali is one such initiative which has been successfully conducted for the last 21 years. A well-planned event that starts from bringing underprivileged children from around 20 homes under one roof, providing them with custom-fit clothes and a delicious meal, to entertaining them for the whole day. The kids are provided with accessories as well, from necklaces to earrings and bracelets made by the women trained under the “Skill Development Programme” of Udhavum Ullangal.
Volunteers from different Corporate spend their day performing and dancing with the children. They distribute clothes, help the little ones to change into their new clothes, take care of their needs and make them enjoy Deepavali well ahead of the actual festival day. This whole process may seem simple, but the efforts behind it are noteworthy.
How Anandha Deepavali Born?
Udhavum Ullangal’s spirit first found expression through Anandha Deepavali, even before the organisation was formally created. In 1998, a few like-minded friends felt that while Deepavali is a special day for so many, it was not special for everyone. In particular, it meant no joy or celebration for deprived and disadvantaged children.
Short Note on Udhavum Ullangal
Udhavum Ullangal (Registered Charitable Trust) has been reaching out to the poor and underprivileged through various charity initiatives. We have become a united team of volunteers who are drawn towards the pressing needs of the underprivileged, the distressed, the sick, and the differently-abled. These disadvantaged individuals can have no hope for the future unless their communities find within themselves the determination to help.
Spirit of Humanity
Majority of the volunteers are working professionals who are between the age group of 25-35. They are the backbone of Anandha Deepavali. They start working a good 100 days prior to the big day, collecting data on the number of children from each orphanage, visiting them to take measurements and preferences of colours, shopping according to the children’s choice and then comes the most difficult task, sorting them and packing them in an efficient manner.
