Illuminating Children’s Rights With The Light Of Deepavali

Deepavali has always captured the imagination with the many clay lamps that Hindus light to illuminate the night. But when this festival is celebrated alongside World Children’s Day, sparks are bound to fly.

Several weeks back, the children of Hiichiikok Foundation attended the Deepavali And World Children’s Day Celebration Dinner, organised by the Budimas Charitable Foundation. 

Other orphanages and homes were equally invited, but the children of Hiichiikok Foundation were given the honour of unofficially officiating the charity dinner with an opening performance.

About 21 children ranging from seven to 15 years old went up the stage to deliver a smashing Jai Ho dance. They looked radiant in their traditional Indian dresses of bright purple, red, beige and blue.

Then there was a solo dance performance by Dimple who amidst cheers and applause, entranced the audience with her lively moves. When they returned to their tables, a vivacious clown came up to entertain them with hand-crafted balloons in all shapes and sizes.

Once it was time to stop clowning around, the children were given coloured papers to create a wish card in conjunction with World Children’s Day, which celebrates children’s rights.

Flowers, hearts and origami swans were quickly formed by their deft fingers. These were then adhered to a single manila cardboard to unify 

their collective artwork.

Then there was the Kolam colouring competition in conjunction with Deepavali. While everyone was busy sprinkling coloured rice flour, the judges made their rounds.

Delightfully, the children of Hiichiikok Foundation won second place in the contest which was judged together with the wishing card contest.

Later on, food was distributed in the form of roti canai, curried rice and barbecued chicken. It is safe to say that there were no hungry tummies that day. Before concluding the event, goody bags were also distributed to the children so that their smiles remained even after returning home.

This enriching event is one of the many that the children indulge in on a weekly basis. For more information on the Hiichiikok Foundation, please go to: https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/

照亮儿童权利的屠妖节之光

屠妖节一直以来都以千百盏印度教徒点亮的黏土灯而引起人们的遐想。但当这个节日与世界儿童日一同庆祝时,火花注定会迸发。

几周前,HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们参加了由Budimas慈善基金组织的屠妖节和世界儿童日庆祝晚宴。

其他孤儿院和家庭也受邀参加,但HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们荣幸地在开场表演中非正式主持了慈善晚宴。

大约有21名年龄在七到十五岁之间的孩子们走上舞台,进行了一场惊艳的“胜利之歌”舞蹈。 他们身着传统的印度服装,色彩鲜艳,有紫色、红色、米色和蓝色。

接着是Dimple的独舞表演,在欢呼和掌声中,她以活泼的舞步迷住了观众。当他们回到座位时,一个充满活力的小丑走上前用各种形状和大小的手工气球取悦他们。

当儿童们停止嬉笑时,他们被赠送有彩纸,以制作与世界儿童日相关的许愿卡,以庆祝儿童的权利。

他们娴熟的手指迅速制作出花朵、心形和折纸天鹅。这些作品随后被粘贴到一张马尼拉纸板上,统一了他们的集体艺术品。

接下来是与屠妖节相关的Kolam着色比赛。 在每个人都忙着撒上彩色米粉的时候,评委们开始评审。

令人愉快的是,HiiChiiKok基金会的孩子们在与许愿卡比赛一同评选的比赛中获得了第二名。

随后,以煎饼、咖喱饭和烤鸡形式分发了食物。可以肯定的是,那天没有一个饥饿的胃。在结束活动之前,礼品袋也分发给孩子们,这样他们在回家后的笑容依然灿烂。

这个丰富多彩的活动是儿童每周参与的众多活动之一。有关HiiChiiKok基金会的更多信息,请访问:https://hiichiikokfoundation.com/
