Holi parties for dispriveleged children

Organised by eCoexist

kids BP school holi 2010

As part of our continuing efforts to make Holi a celebration that is safe for health and for the environment, eCoexist also ensures that it is inclusive and reaches out to children from all backgrounds, communities and economic stratas.

For the past several years, eCoexist has been organising events for challenged children, where we bring them colours and snacks and organise volunteers to go and play Holi with them. We have beautiful memories of playing Holi with visually impaired, hearing impaired and mentally challenged children. These events are sponsored by individuals and corporates who are part of the eCoexist network. NGOs like Akanksha and Bal kalyan sanstha host these events and often there is an educational activity that goes with it too.

For 2012 eCoexist has planned to organise Holi for the following organisations
