Deepavalli - Light Up A Life

Deepavalli "Light Up A Life" initiative encourages Hindus to support our own holy days as a time of giving, above those of other faiths. The concept of giving and sharing during Deepavalli is already entrenched within our traditions, but limited to family friends and neighbors who are in most instances, able to afford these sweetmeats and other luxuries. The idea is to encourage Hindus to use this opportunity to reach out to those that are less fortunate than our selves. The hampers are packed in individual boxes which are painted in different colors and include an assortment of educational items, hygiene items, tasty treats and toys. These boxes are distributed, to orphaned, abused and underprivileged children in the Zululand area. Deepavalli is often negatively perceived by non-Hindus due to our use of fireworks during this celebration, so we use this opportunity to inform all the young children about the real essence of Deepavalli.
