During the week of October 2nd - 8th, there is a special event in India: Daan Utsav, also known as The Joy of Giving Week is a "festival of philanthropy" celebrated every year by engaging people through acts of giving, be it money, time, resources and skills. A variety of events are held during this week, including  Slum Soccer, where students from rural India get the opportunity to be coached by some of the best  coaches in India, through a week long competition, as well as other opportunities for students to develop their creative skills: Bottle Painting, Puppet making, and a visit to the Eco park for our lucky students! 

For only INR 28.760 or £288 we can send 46 of our students to Kolkata, some for a week, as with Slum Soccer, or for a couple of days, to give them a chance to pursue their passion. This is a huge opportunity for our students to realize how education can play into the fulfillment of their dreams, and we need your help to get them there!

This is a life-changing, once in a lifetime opportunity for many of the 46 students who will be attending. From getting a chance to show off their skills and meet some very influential people, to developing their hobbies and interest, discovering their capital city (many of them have never been!), or just reinforcing some of the short-term benefits of pursuing an education, we need your support to get them there!
So where will the funds raised go exactly ?
What are some of the activities? 

Slum Soccer is a competition where 15 teams of children from local NGOS get the opportunity to be trained  4 hours a day, over 4 days by some of India's top coaches, this year also including a German Coach. 

Eco Park is an urban children's park with a variety of exciting activities for children to partake in, including boating, kayaking, visiting the butterfly garden, and many others. You can find more about Eco Park here.
