“We are the world…
We are the children…
We are the ones who make a brighter day…”

Most of us have heard these lines coming out of Michael Jackson's mouth and we love this song too but how many of us can actually understand the meaning?

As kids, many of us had the privilege of going to fully constructed and well equipped schools, not to mention our parents nagging us to wake up early, helping us get ready and dropping us at school. Imagine the life of a child without parents going to a school, the construction of which has come to a halt because of insufficient funds. There are Orphan Children out there, who are very enthusiastic about going to school.

Children are the future of every nation across the world. It is today's generation which can go ahead and make the world a better place. We can learn, we can make others learn. All in all, we are the ones who can change the world if we want.

So let us be the change, let us help the Orphan Kids at Swami Vivekananda Gurukul School in Vikarabad have the privilege of a fully constructed school.

Let us help these kids realize their dream of a fully constructed school. This year we felt that the best way to celebrate JOY OF GIVING WEEK would be for residents of cities – especially the young - to spend a night of solidarity under the stars with our Orphan Kids, as part of a larger celebration of the joy of giving week. Svechha is organizing “Under the Stars”- a fun sleep out night event at the school premises in Vikarabad to transform the school from half constructed to a fully constructed one on October 5th, as part of Joy of Giving week activities.

While we do not expect to achieve an understanding of the everyday challenges of an orphan child’s life in just one night, what we will do is raise awareness and funds which will be spent entirely for providing better facilities and infrastructure for the kids. Participants will make a minimum donation/sponsorship sum towards these kids in order to take part.

Event details:

  • Date: 5th October 2013

  • Timings: 7pm and 7am

  • Pick up at 6 pm near cyber towers Hi-Tech ciy

“Under The Stars” will be one of the major public events planned for the Joy of Giving Week festival from 2nd – 8th October. During the evening participants will get to interact with the kids directly. There will also be some entertainment including games, music, food and campfire.

About the School:
This school, "Swami Vivekananda gurukul of excellence" is 90kms away from Hyderabad, founded by an organization started by doctors called "Yagna". Currently there are 53 kids boarding at this school, "Swami Vivekananda gurukul school", out of which 33 kids have no parents, the rest have single parents. They do not have good boarding facilities right now. To get CBSE affiliation, they also need more class rooms. The school also educates poor children of the rural children around. This event is to raise funds for this boarding school.

" Spending time with the kids would be the greatest thing, Next best thing would be to donate For their future...For their dreams "
