UDAAN is an initiative of AIESEC in Delhi University to bring out the talent in every underprivileged child. The series of events give opportunities to underprivileged children to exhibit their talent by expressing themselves through cultural workshops and various competitions.
On July 6, AIESEC in Delhi University organised a pre-event to kickstart the event which has now become synonymous with AIESEC. Thirty four volunteers and a seven member organizing committee took 500 children from the NGO Chetanalya to the National Museum and showed them around. The excited children first had kirtan, a pooja, which instilled happiness and lifted everyone’s spirits. The joy was evident from the spontaneous dance they all burst into. They were then shown the movie based on The Battle of Plassey. After the movie, Iskon, our food relief partners provided the children with food. It was one memorable day for the children, and the joy on their faces was a heart rendering sight for the volunteers. One of the volunteers said “The kids really enjoyed and came out of their comfort zone, they saw a movie at the Museum which they will never actually see in their life otherwise”.
AIESEC in Delhi University is proud to have spread happiness among the less fortunate. The pre-event was a definite success. The next event will be taking place on the 9th at the Nehru Planetarium. To volunteer with AIESEC for Udaan 2013, register at http://goo.gl/bpLMO
