New Delhi - Nov. 28, 2006 – RRF announced today that its family of children celebrated children’s day on November 14, 2006 with festivities across all its projects. The slum dweller children from the Raina Prayas project celebrated the day with a visit to the children fantasy park Appu Ghar (Delhi’s answer to Disney World) in Delhi, preceded by a day of arts, music and dance competition amongst its children.
The versatility of the Raina Prayas children was in ample abundance as they competed with each other in terms of poetry, acting, dance, music, anchoring and painting. This was followed the next day, by the children being taken to Appu Ghar for a day of fun and frolic at the renowned games park.
RRF spokesperson Sanjay Supehia said, “It is amazing to see these children grow in terms of their confidence and knowledge, over the years. It is doubly fulfilling when you see the smiles on the faces of these children and remember that the same children some time back were either loitering on the streets of Bawana or were being forced to work to earn a living at a tender age.”
RRF Spokesperson Sanjay Supehia also issued an appeal to all its donors and patrons to donate generously to the cause of these slum dweller’s children. Donations can be made in two ways-

About Children’s Day
Children’s day is celebrated on 14th November every year to mark the birthday of Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, the first Prime Minister of India. He was one of the foremost leaders of Indian freedom struggle and the favorite disciple of Mahatma Gandhi. Jawahar Lal Nehru is widely regarded as the architect of modern India. He was very fond of children and children used to affectionately call him Chacha Nehru.
RRF and Prayas, one of the largest charities in India (www.prayaschildren.org) have partnered together to adopt 400 children belonging to slum areas, in Bawana in North West Delhi, India and today run an institution to provide these children with food, clothing, education, hope and an upbringing that provides these children with a childhood full of fun and joy.
