Wishing you all a very Happy Deepavali !!

As the world gears up to celebrate the festival of lights, it has a special and deeper significance for the children at Amar Seva Sangam, India. These children with special needs from all religious backgrounds will merrily celebrate Deepavali in the wee hours on Nov. 2nd, wearing new clothes, eating special sweets and lighting up fire crackers....

Our heartfelt gratitude to each and everyone of you, for making this dream a reality !!

Our special thanks goes to Bramhasri. Chandramouli pundit of Athi Parasakthi temple, for sponsoring the clothing of all children (over 300) as well as sponsoring special Deepavali lunch to all children and residents at Amar Seva Sangam (Photos will be posted after Nov. 2nd). It is such generousity to put smiles on the many faces whom he has not even met but very briefly in the beginning of the year, that is so touching and rewarding !!

In the past months, we have had several visitors from Canada visiting Amar Seva Sangam to personally experience and evaluate what their donations to Handi-Care Intl., is utilized for. Mrs. Uma and Mr. Chandrasekhar from Toronto, just returned from India and while in India, they took time to visit our major partner, Amar Seva Sangam for a few days. Here are his impressions.... " During my stay at Amar Seva sangam, I spoke to all the teachers, parents, disabled children and amazed with the facilities offered, cleanliness, professionalism in every worker, fresh atmosphere, fine food and the list goes on. The training methods used for mentally challenged children and physically challenged kids is truly scientific.  They have workshops, production units for book binding, doll making, note book making, etc. that inspire confidence and self supporting abilities in the students ..... more



In the spirit of Deepavali, it is an occasion to give, share and celebrate!!
