Dear Friends & Well-Wishers of Shaishav, c
Wish you all very Happy New Year !!
The new year of 2013 is coming with many good news for us. Balsena is completing its 10 years of existence & Tarunsena is completing its 5 years of existence in January 2013. We are delighted to invite you to celebrate this occasion.
You might remember that Smt. Elaben Bhatt of SEWA inaugurated Balsena on 12th January,2003 (National Youth Day and Swami Vivekananda’s Birthday), Dr. Shantha Sinha (Chair Person, National commission for protection of Child Rights and Founder, M.V. Foundation) inaugurated Tarunsena on 20th January, 2008. Since than the children & youth have taken responsibilities to change their own lives, supported each other, and made attempts to bring change in their communities and society.
On this occasion we are organizing events in January 2013 and would like to invite you for the same. On 17th,18th, and 19th January, 2013. We are organizing a State Consultation on the theme of “Leadership, Participation & Governance” at Bhavnagar. We are hoping that about 100 children and 50 adults from about 25 organizations across Gujarat will participate in the process. Shaishav is taking this responsibility on behalf of Child Rights Collective – Gujarat.
Followed by this on Sunday, 20th January, Balsena & Tarunsena will celebrate completion of its 10th & 5th year. Considering the present concern at national level, this year the theme is “Safety and Protection of children.” There will be special programs for older and younger groups of children and separate programs for boys and girls. The whole day program will be from 8:30 am. to 5:00 pm. and about 1000 to 1200 children are expected to participate in this program.
We are very happy that after about 2 decades of the dedicated work we have been able to get the premises for Shaishav. We are lucky to mobilize the resources from some donor from USA & India. We are planning to inaugurate it on Saturday, 26th January,2013 from 10:30 am to 1:00 pm. It is our great honor that Swami Nikhileshwaranandji of Ramkrishna Mission, Vadodara will give us the blessing on this occasion.
You are long standing supporter, friend and well-wisher of Shaishav. It would be our great pleasure to have you with us at all these joyful moments of our journey. Kindly give us your consent at your earliest. If for any reason, you are unable to be present there, kindly send us your good wishes.
We look forward to hear your positive response & also to meet you at these events.
Thanks & warm Regards
