Every child is a special ‘gift of God’! Celebrating the presence of special children in our lives, Leon’s World Centre for Holistic Learning and Development had organized a Sunshine Saturday. Dedicated to let every child shine with his or her own brilliance, Sunshine Saturday was planned in such a way that every child got a chance to showcase their skills and talents.
Children who are differently abled are often kept in a protected environment, but more than anything they need to feel and be included in the mainstream community. Sunshine Saturday was just such a platform which made these special children shed any inhibitions they may have and just have fun!
So we had children who were all up for shaking a leg and picking up some new dance moves, while others proved to be exceptional at sports. Grandparents who had accompanied some of the children also got a chance to relive their childhood and participate in games with their grandchildren. And who doesn’t love a good story with a twist in it. Everyone present thoroughly got into the spirit of the day and had a great time interacting with the children.
A grandfather who had attended the event with his grand-daughter said, “I am very pleased to have been a part of this Sunshine Saturday. Leon’s World Centre has done a fantastic job of giving our children such a wonderful platform to shine. We look forward to many more such days where our kids can enjoy themselves and feel so welcome and included.”
