“Gratitude paints little smiley faces on everything it touches”
– Richelle E. Goodrich
Udaan India Foundation is a Mumbai based organisation working in Powai with children and youth from low-income communities for the last 15 years. We believe in reducing the inequities around us by building communities that care and hence this year the theme is Parvah for Powai.
At Udaan, we believe that the greatest joy in life is giving. We want our children and youth to know that real joy lies in not giving material gifts but in giving one’s time to spread love, happiness, compassion and gratitude in the community.
Our youth will urge Powaites to join the movement – ParvahforPowai for creating communities that care by leading an awareness campaign, a plantation drive and collecting e-waste. While one group of youth will urge Powaites to restore the beauty of Powai lake through a unique awareness campaign, another group of youth will lead a sapling and plantation drive to preserve green spaces in the urban landscape. These green spaces will reduce air pollution, provide shelter for biodiversity and strengthen the lungs of Mumbai. Yet another group will be our recycle champions and lead e-waste management by collecting e-waste from societies in Chandivali and Powai.
Our children will nurture a culture of gratitude by saying thank you to our everyday superheroes of Powai. Through personalized thank you cards and one-on-one conversations, our children and volunteers will acknowledge the crucial role of our community helpers in our daily lives. Our children will also thank their parents for their unconditional love and celebrate the role of ISRO scientists in making our nation proud.
