WADALA, MARCH 09, 2012: On March 8, Shelter Don Bosco boys along with the staffs marched towards children home for the Holi celebrations. The boys armed themselves with colors and snacks for the boys in children's home.
The staff at children's home gave us a warm welcome. The highlight of the day was a narrated history about the myth and meaning of the celebration. Then the riot of colors of various hues and shades took over. The boys enjoyed themselves by coloring the faces of the staff members and their friends. Along with colors, the boys also tuned themselves to the music in spontaneous dancing. After hours of playing and dancing, the boys and the staff were provided with snacks and soft drinks.
They thoroughly enjoyed this celebration. It was a well planned event with prior permissions taken from the competent authorities. This is one of the strategic moves to network with the NGOs working for the children/ youth at risk to arrive at our common goal, the holistic welfare of the youth/ children of the street.
