Colours of Diwali with Fulora Foundation

The students of Chetana’s Institutes of Management and Research added a dash of colour this Diwali to the lives of more than 1400 street children. Over 250 students, in association with Fulora Foundation organized a drawing competition for the street children of Mumbai. The objective behind the activity was to draw the children who live in the fringes into the mainstream.

The students visited over 75 locations across Mumbai and distributed drawing sheets and crayons to children ranging from ages 2 to 15. The wonderful imagination and talent of the children was captured in the beautiful images painted by the children. The drawings made by the children were judged by an esteemed panel comprising of veteran artists and the Dean of JJ School of Art. The best drawings would be auctioned and the proceeds generated would go towards funding the education of the underprivileged children.

For the management students, the entire activity was an exercise in resource planning, manpower management and coordination. The outcome was that while they made a difference in the children’s lives, they made a difference in their own lives.
