Improving the Colours of his Life
Our Art Mela brought to the fore the talent of Sahil Rauth, an Apeejay Anand Library child. We wanted to channelize Sahil´s potential and so we invited him to join Apeejay School.
My First Party
Hundreds of kids gathered at Sahoday School grounds for a party organised for them by Childline to celebrate Children´s Day. Now, for hundreds of street kids in Delhi, Children´s Day has come to mean a Birthday celebration for each one of them.
Little Heroes of the Stage
The 16th of January 2011 saw the opening of the Inter-school Street Theatre Festival in Kolkata giving students a platform for showcasing their acting talent. The theme of the event was "Indian Youth: In Search of a Hero" .
Apeejay Trust has supported with funds the work of the National Foundation for Communal Harmony (NFCH to instill an appreciation for communal amity, harmony and non-violence in young ones whose families have been torn asunder by communal violence.
A Message Worth Spreading
In 2010, Apeejay Group supported Childline´s national campaign, "Childline Se Dosti," by wholeheartedly magnifying its reach to enable them to achieve their purpose of turning ordinary citizens into stakeholders for street children´s rights and protection mechanisms.
Learning By Example
We believe that in order to encourage and inspire underprivileged children towards a better life, it is important to create role models teach them through examples. Therefore for the launch of the Anand Paul Education Support Programme, we organised a very special performance.
