ACTIVITIES CONDUCTED

 

  • Spreading the Deepavali Light through a programme titled ‘Andhere se Ujaala Tak’ meaning ‘From Darkness to Light‘ a programme organized for families Christian and non-Christian, the theme of the programme was the problems of the youth viz. drugs, joblessness and the various pressures that they are exposed to. The programme was well appreciated by our Non Christian brethren.
