Lighting up children's lives during Diwali

On the 23rd of October, 2022, Dream India Network and Reach Lives in partnership with Sophia girls high school organized a cultural show for children in foster homes and orphanages across Bengaluru. The event which was graced by eminent personalities in the government, religious leaders and leaders of the corporate world featured cultural performances including dances, songs and plays by children.


A total of 600 children from across Dream India Network's foster home system and from partner orphanages and old age homes took part in the event.


What followed was a series of wonderful performances by talented children which left the audience awestruck. The religious leaders from the various faiths also took the opportunity to commit to fostering harmony and spreading peace across communal lines.


Dream India Network also used the opportunity to recognize the efforts of its well wishers and partners. Dr. Victor Mohan and Dr. Senneil Gomes of Reach Lives were felicitated during the event.


At Reach Lives we take pride in using the myriad festivals that are celebrated in India to bring people of various faiths together and achieve something impactful. We look forward to organizing an even bigger event next year. But in the mean time, we would like to extend our thanks to all the volunteers who helped us organize the event: DIN volunteers, Reach Lives volunteers, Sophia's girls high school volunteers and volunteers from partner organizations.


Fast approaching is Christmas 2022. Last year, Reach Lives brought over 10,000 gifts to the underprivileged across Bengaluru in 2 auto rickshaws that were decked up as reindeer. This year, we're planning on doing more. Join us in our quest to bring joy to thousands of children in foster homes and orphanages across Bengaluru. Volunteer now. Or sponsor gifts for children.
