With around 250 children studying in 38 schools associated with Sunshine Society in villages like barola, hoshiyarpur, sadarpur, chalera etc, there are around 200 children in 3 After School Program centres in sector 50 and 51. The education of these children is funded through money generated collectively from raddi collected by 10 residential societies in noida and also through donor support from around 90 sponsors and 7 corporates. Around 80 senior citizens are associated with the NGO with their numbers multiplying fast. Many of them are productively involved in our after school program centres teaching and shaping the future of these children. The idea is to enrich and empower the lives of these seniors.
Keeping in line with this philosophy, Sunshine Society showcased a fundraiser ‘Musical Ramayan' directed by Amanpreet Kaur, on 5th October this year where the participants were seniors, who once again proved that change has nothing to do with numbers but mind. The entire evening was an amalgamation of power, poise and charisma emanating in the form of cosmic vibrations with senior wonder performing on this greatest mythological saga of love, sacrifice and virtue. The show commenced with bhajans in the melodious voice of Swayamsiddha Das & Sarvesh Mehrotra which acted as a prelude to Ramayan. With MC and Executive member Ramita Taneja taking the audience through the journey of Sunshine Society over the years, the stage was set for an exiting journey ahead. The performances were marvellous and spellbinding which left the audience glued to their seats cheering the participants throughout the show.
