This event is part of Daan Utsav (Joy of Giving Week celebration) which is India’s festival of giving happening every year between 2nd – 8th October. Indians from all walks of life are encouraged to engage in acts of giving during the week, this could be something personal and individual or something you organise as a group. It can be by giving your time, money or skill to a cause. During the week there are also platform events organised by volunteers for which the general public are invited to participate. UNDER THE STARS is one such event.
Happening this year for the second time, Under The Stars is a first of its kind event in India inviting 2,000 individuals to sleep rough without shelter for one night on 1st October. Participants register for a pass by making a donation of Rs.1,100/- to one of the partner NGOs that are supported or to the common pool, where funds will be divided equally among our NGOs. The event will mark the opening of the Daan Utsav festival. This campaign is to help raise more funds for the NGOs that work in this area to eradicate homelessness and destitution

I am participating in this event as a Gold Champion and pledging to raise 50,000Rs. I am very proud to be one of the organsiers of this event as I am also lucky enough to see the direct benefits of the money raised. All money raised for The Baale Mane will be allocated towards expanding the Baale Mane campus so that we are able to provide 25+ more girls with a safe and secure home, education and an opportunty to explore their other creative talents. Each year we have more and more girl children that require this support. By donating to me in this event you will assist in bringing us one step closer this goal.
