Diwali with Swayam: #RoshanKarein
Celebrations have begun at Mata Bhagwanti Chadha Niketan (MBCN) for the most awaited festival of the year. Excited to celebrate it in style, students are planning something big for one and all to experience. At Swayam, the vocational workshop of MBCN, preparations are in full swing with our specially-abled children coming together to create beautiful handmade products to be offered as presents.
In a bid to remind us that we must not forget our loved ones on special occasions, they’re packing Diwali goodies for us to give away. With every box, they wrap a wish for our lives to shine like every other day is the festival of lights. So, with Swayam by your side, Diwali #RoshanKarein with innovative gifts for your friends and family.
These can be beautifully handcrafted gifts like bags and boxes from the vocational workshop of this charitable school for mentally and physically challenged. What goes behind the making of these attractive paper bags and colourful gift boxes is the persistent hard work of children at Swayam. They toil tirelessly to make these products with hand-made, eco-friendly paper.
A Sweet Gesture for WAVE Group and CTBC Bank
This year, both CTBC Bank and WAVE Group reached out to the school for extending Diwali wishes to their employees. Children at Swayam have been busy giving a festive touch to these gifts by wrapping them in red, gold and royal blue. Thanks to their commitment, the order was wrapped up in no time as they made 350 sweet boxes for the bank and packed off 2500 units for the corporate house.
The experience has been truly worthwhile. CTBC bank is our new collaborator working to find special talent at the vocational workshops of MBCN. It has supported us in further encouraging the differently-abled children to become independent and earn a living.
Spreading Joy to One and All
Apart from offering items for personal purchase, our Diwali benefits extend to buyers like Madhya Pradesh Hastshilp Evam Hathkargha Vikas Nigam and Taj, New Delhi. Likewise, our children have worked hard to meet product orders received from the Parliament of India, Loom Tree, NIIT Technologies and Marks and Spencer, London.
A Box Full of Surprises
It does not end here. If you go to the MBCN website, you can expect to find many boxes full of surprises. Available online, these products are a result of the continuous efforts of the differently-abled who are ever so engrossed in creating different designs.
From photo frames, envelopes and jewellery boxes to make-up kits and pen holders with frames, one can pick up any product here and find each to have been made with recycled paper. This Diwali, visit Swayam at the MBCN campus to appreciate the efforts of these differently-abled children and choose special gifts for your friends and family from a variety of handmade paper items.
