Sevalaya is participating in Daan Utsav (Joy of Giving) Celebrations, on Oct 2nd to 8th, 2015.
The following programmes are planned for the week
Sevalaya will partner with few corporates and put up a WishTree in their premises.
Organizations can support the wishes of Children which would be put up in a tree (a tree model). Wish cards containing the details of each child of Sevalaya like the name, class and section of the child and the wish of the child like sweets, crackers, school bag, a pair of shoes etc will be placed on the wish tree. Employees of the corporate can choose to satisfy the wish of any child by picking up a card and fulfilling the wish mentioned in it. A small contribution from employees can thus help fulfill a child’s wish.
