JVM’s Team Association and students in each slum community decorated their slums centres in lieu of the Independence Day celebration.
15th August 1947, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru proudly raised the tri colour flag of India at Red Fort, Delhi. India was finally free from the British rule. Every year after 1947 Indians all round the world remember this day and rise for the national anthem when the Prime Minister raises the flag in the Red Fort.
After 74th years of Independence there are still 68 millions slums in India, there is still exist high rate of Poverty and deaths due to lack of treatment.
Being an NGO, We are dedicated to spread smiles amongst the underprivileged children, spent some lovely moments with the slum children and made them aware about the stories related to freedom struggle. Following the norms of social distancing, these kids were distributed masks and then came the engaging session where these slum dwellers were made aware on how Indians fought hard to shoo away the Britishers to liberate India from the clutches of slavery.
Keeping in view the Government’s ‘Swachch Bharat Campaign,’ cleanliness was an integral part of the celebrations. Different types of Snacks were distributed & also teach them about Precautions which should be taken by everyone during this Pendamic period.
Those Slums were colored with tri-color flags, kites, birds etc. Those Slum dwellers shared aboud their dream of an Ideal India and how they would contribute to making it so. The celebration ended with the National Anthem.
