Diwali is the most important festival celebrated by Indians all over the world. It is regarded as the pinnacle of India’s festive season. Themes of good versus evil, admiration for Indian culture, and, most importantly, the experience of giving to friends and family are hallmarks of this season.
Giving and receiving gifts on Diwali is a long-standing tradition in India. Diwali represents abundance, love, and respect, so giving and receiving gifts during Diwali means camaraderie and community among individuals.
After all, DIWALI is the time of reflection!
It’s that time of year when most people get together with their friends and family to spend quality time together. However, Diwali is just another day for many Indian children who struggle and lack access to healthcare and education. These kids are on the outskirts of society. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has only exacerbated their situation, making them even more vulnerable in their current situation.
Diwali is all about celebrating hope and belief. Hope is what helps so many unprivileged children and people around the country get through the adversities, and we at Ketto believe that all of us can do our bit to make a difference. This year we want to be the candle that lights other candles. We want to celebrate with those for whom Diwali passes in a shade of grey. So let us all help by donating without hesitation, enlightening lives, dispelling darkness, and weaving memories of the poor and unprivileged children. So rather than buying friends and relatives gifts, perhaps the focus should be on giving something back to those who have nothing.
Here are five causes you can give during Diwali and brighten the lives of poor children.
- Gift a meal for poor children
- A home for disabled girls/boys
- Conduct a fundraising campaign to benefit more children
- Sponsor a school
- Donate to menstrual hygiene for girls
If you are someone who feels for the needy like we do, then whole-heartedly donate for the unprivileged children on our below apps.
