More than 200 children from different slums of Bhubaneswar and Berhampur took part in the ‘evening with young children’ organised by Humara Bachpan recently.
The cultural programme was a medium to express solidarity with the families who have incurred loss due to the recent cyclone .
The children enjoyed the cultural programme of music and dance. An exhibition was also organised on the sidelines of the event where children showcased their creativity.
Drinking habits, poverty and lack of guidance leave these children directionless. They grow without a sense of social security. Thus such cultural programmes are useful for their overall growth, said the guests participating in the event. Amar Patnaik, Accountant General, CAG, Michael Figelson , Program Director and Dharitri Patnaik, India Representative Bernard van Leer Foundation (BvLF) were present on the occasion.
