This Karwachauth, Prasanchetas Foundation along with Ayyaam NGO, came with the event for celebrating, Karwa with a Cause, where we had this privilege to create a platform for the young talented girls from the down trodden segment, to have an opportunity to showcase their talent. The Karwa Mela made sure that these girls display small little things made from waste material and created by their own hands, convince the buyers with the quality of their product and negotiate to en-cash the real value of their product or services.
These girls installed stalls for applying beautiful Heena, Tatoo Making, Nail Art, Handmade Crafts for Diwali, Karwa and Diyas and much more from their talent pool.
Apart from the financial gains, these girls earned many more enriching experiences and that too for the first time inclusive of sitting in a car, stepping out of Chandigarh and moving into the neighboring city of Mohali.
Above all these girls earned the confidence and trust of their parents to allow them to be outside the home, working till late evening and eventually being filled with feeling of doing much more meaningful. By involving girls in such activities we have been able to add more value to their lives and experiences of these girls which is much more and above than just support them with charity
