“In every religion there is love, yet love has no religion.” – Rumi
It is true that love knows no barriers, and when it comes to showering affection on our family of almost five hundred children, we celebrate each festival with a smile.
Pehchaan The Street School has dedicated itself to fulfilling children’s academic necessities as well as celebrating every religious or non-religious festival without discrimination. After celebrating Diwali, Christmas and Holi, a simple question raised by a child amazed us all, “Bhaiya, hum agle hafte Eid manayenge na?” Yes, we would surely celebrate Eid with the same vigor and gusto.
We celebrated the festival of Eid-ul-Fitr at Pehchaan The Street School and the zeal and enthusiasm of kids transformed the aura of the centre. Each volunteer was brimming with joy during festive preparations which rejuvenated the school even during these hot days of summer. The children prepared colored charts to decorate our centre and also made greeting cards to be given to devotees in mosques as a token of love after their evening Namaaz.
Pehchaan The Street School is also a platform for these children to showcase their talent; some of the children showed their best dance moves tapping along to a variety of Hindi and folk songs. Our volunteers and supporters also shared their immense love by providing eatables and stationery for all the children. Eid-ul-Fitr is a symbol of togetherness, love, and peace and at Pehchaan The Street School, we follow the most significant religion on Earth – humanity.
