Children of Paramount Emotion, a high rise in Greater Noida, took paper and colours in their hands for drawing competition organised in the society on Sunday. Children from different age groups had to make drawing on theme of ‘Swachh Bharat’ which was given to them by the organising team.
The event was organised by Amarpushp Education and Welfare Society, an NGO headed by Ashish Kushwaha, a resident of Arihant Arden in Greater Noida West.
Kushwaha told CitySpidey that the event was organised with the help of a group of active residents who provided place and things required for the event.
Sanjay Kushwaha, a resident of Paramount Emotions said, “We always welcome such events which encourage our children and involve them for such activities. Many residents turned out to participate in the event. Snacks were there for children.”
The organising team had fixed a charge of Rs 150 for each children to participate and 35 children took part in the event.
Ashish Kushwaha told that the organisation has taken fee from the parents of the children. “We charge on those who are capable to pay and residents of high rises support us voluntarily. We spend the amount collected from these residents to organise similar events for under privileged children.”
As Ashish claimed, the NGO also organised workshop on handmade craft for under privileged women who learn making glass bangles and Rakhi.
“We also help them to sell their handmade products at residential societies. We provide space to them for selling of products. We have also planned to organise similar events in other societies too,” he said.
