Maithri had a wonderful and interesting visitor, Mr. Raghunath from the Kanchi Kamakoti Foundation Inc., New York, USA. He made efforts to understand our projects and network of rural educational programs by visiting places around Chennai. He also distributed the educational help provided by Maithri to the children who are under the care of charity homes in villages. We gained useful information from his visit and expertise.

Deepavali was celebrated by Maithri with senior citizens and children on 19th October by distributing dresses, sweets and food. Thanks to Mr. Prabhu Srinivasan who had sponsored this in memory of his father Mr. Srinivasan. Maithri provided dress materials (with stitching charges) plus soaps, shampoo, dhal packet, snacks and sweets to 7 needy children. These deserving students want to remember this festival fondly for its fun and joyous celebrations and this was made possible by the volunteers of Maithri.

Bringing joy and happiness in the life of these children by means of such get-to-gethers, will ensure that they do not feel isolated from society. As their childhood will never come back in their life, it is important that these days are filled with fond memories. Children responded happily and hope that this would be an annual event.

Maithri would like to make this an annual event. Maithri requests and seeks sponsors for this annual important event that brings bountiful joy to the children.
