No wonder, social work is trending now-a-days to a great extent. We can see that more people are taking keen interest in making the life of special children the unique one. Project happiness is a daylong event organized by Zero Gravity since past 8 years in the month of August. It is an initiative for the kids of orphanages, special schools and physically challenged children who are deprived of the lil pleasures and luxuries of life. Every year, around 500-600 of such kids visit this unique and one of its kind fun fair and take back mind full of happy memories.
And no doubt, this year too, Zero Gravity has scribbled its own success story of harvesting happiness fort these kids. The fair project happiness was organized on August 8, 2015 at Jawaharlal Vasti Gruh. The kids from home for aged and handicapped, government orphanage, Shraddhanad Anathlaya, platform school, physically challenged boys home, and many others graced the fair with their presence. Zero Gravity this time had come up with an environmental and inspirational theme “the garden of happiness”. The kids seemed enjoying the mindboggling games to their fullest and were sighted relishing food, which gave great sight of inspiration. Adding to the aura was the soulful performance by the Farishtey and the peppy dance jamming sessions. The kids were boosted dancing to the beats of songs like ‘ilahi mera jee aaye’ and ‘aey saala abhi abhi’. The youth was totally engrossed in making these children enjoy every part of the event to the core. Well, working hard to see the happiness in the eyes of these children, Zero Gravity knows very well how to make the day for these children the worth it. The tattoo and nail art stations and the photo booth pampered the kids in true sense. Project Happiness, the fair was a sense of fresh air to the seemingly monotonous lives of hundreds of these underprivileged kids. Not only the kids, but everyone enjoyed the time seeing these kids enjoying leaving their worries and sorrows behind.
Zero Gravity is a youth organization of the city headed by Dr. Shrikant Jichkar Foundation, with a purpose organization that takes up issues worrying the society, gathers youth forces and works to build a suitable solution for the same. Zero Gravity has launches its work under three projects: Project Happiness, Project Hindustan and Project Earth. Every project is carried out with great amount of youth participation and dedication.
To the end of the event, as the kids where all set to go back home, they were gifted various essential stuffs. Leaving the place, all what we could conclude was one day, a bunch full of determined youth and smiles on hundreds of innocent faces.
Tons of blessings, love and happiness all over!
