Santa visits the underprivileged this Christmas

Christmas is a time of celebration, hope and laughter. Perhaps the only time when children all over the world Children perform a Christmas play at Deepalaya School Kalkaji Extension wake up bright and early with a gleam in their eyes and a smile on their lips, ready to rip open and enjoy their crisply wrapped presents. The sad truth, however, is that there are millions of children around the world who are deprived of this experience, not because they’ve been naughty, but because they come from underprivileged backgrounds and cannot afford to celebrate Christmas.

In order to bring the joy and light of Christmas into the lives of such underprivileged children, Deepalaya, like every year, hosted Christmas

Special athletes from the Special Unit

This winter has been a little extra special for differently-abled students from the Special Unit. After having Students from Deepalaya run a marathon in Delhiproven the mettle of their vocational skills at the Abilympics, our team went on to participate in a multitude of sports competitions. Their aim, to show the world that despite being physically limited their determination and willpower more than made up for any perceived gap.

 

The first half of November saw the children take part in the Salwan Marathon, organised by Special Olympics Bharat and the 5th Special Athletic Meet, organised by HCPA (Handicapped Children’s Parent Association).
