Feedback- Diwali celebrations at BOSCO + ECHO

Better late than never…

We really had a great time at BOSCO, Sumanahalli and enjoyed every moment right from enjoying skit to various types of dance performances to prayer to lighting of lamps to cracker bursting to the yummy delicious food. You wont believe before I left home my mom was like telling me rather than bursting crackers light lamps all around and I came back home and told her happily that her wish was fulfilled which you can see in snaps:) All thanks to you Father Cyriac and BOSCO staff and children. We really enjoyed it!!!

We infact ended up celebrating Diwali with 2 organisations at a time. As we saw the volunteers from St Joseph were cutely involved in playing with kids at BOSCO and there was sometime for programme to get started, so we thought we will drop in to organisation next door for sometime and we landed up at ECHO (organisation working for children in difficult circumstances in the city of Bangalore), where we spent sometime with kids there and gave them some crackers and sweets and then came back and thoroughly enjoyed every minute at BOSCO.
