A bunch of young minds are doing their bit to make New Year’s Eve special for children of municipality schools

The Giving Monks, a group of college going individuals, has decided to make this New Year a little more special for children who live in slums around Manilal Sunderji Municipal UP Tamil School in Vile Parle (W) by organising a party for them. This party would be an ode to  childhood parties that involved chips, music and games.

The Giving Monks also organise a food drive every Sunday across slums

One of the core members of the group, Dishant Sheth says, "As kids, most of us must have conducted or been a part of such kitty or birthday parties on terraces. We will relive this memory with the students of the municipality schools and give them a taste of our childhood."

"We are going to play music, dance and sing, watch a film on the projector, and if we have enough funds, we have decided to give them a return gift of some kind," he lists. They are expecting around 150 children.

The event is open to contributions from anyone. The Giving Monks comprises four core members — Dishant Sheth, Piyush Kamdar, Miloni Visaria and Dhara Dholakia and volunteers. "We also have a Whatsapp group with 15 members who pitch in regularly," says Seth.
