“Being a tailor, I used to stitch new dresses for others but could not provide one to my children, this keeps breaking my heart” says Muthulakshmi a single mother of two whose husband passed away many year ago due to heart attack.
There are hundreds of such stories which are the reason behind Team Everest’s ‘Diwali for All’ initiative.
This year we have got 710 new dresses for parentless kids, single-parented kids, financially poor kids, homeless people, visually challenged, differently abled and kids at rural places. Thanks to all the donors who contributed towards this initiative.
Choosing your Diwali dress is always a special and exciting moment we wanted the kids to experience it. So we provided a token which they can use to shop their dresses from the shop we partnered with. The happiness of choosing their new dress can be seen in their faces.
For others who were not able to visit the shop, we bought dresses and distributed it to them. Here are some memorable moments during this year ‘Diwali for All’:
