On 14th February when the world celebrates Valentine’s day with red roses, Rotary club of Nagpur celebrates it with 650 specially abled children, every year, under the name “Udaan”. This is a day long program, where these specially abled children from various schools for children with physical and mental difficulties, under Nagpur ZP, take part in sports and cultural events and competitions. Breakfast, Lunch, snacks etc. are provided along with return gifts. The programme is organized on a huge scale in association with Lata Mangeshkar Hospital and Zilla Parishad, Nagpur. Venue for the programme was St. Ursula Girls’ School’s sports ground.
The event was inaugurated by MLA, Mr. Ashish Deshmukh, in morning at 9.00 AM. Members of Rotaract club of Tirpude’s Management Students are eager to lend a helping hand during this mammoth event. They render help in various activities to the parent club members – serving breakfast, organizing sports competitions, cultural events and other related tasks and in ensuring that the entire event is conducted in a smooth manner. More importantly, the Rotaractors were able to establish friendly discussions with the special kids and understand their difficulties in facing life and thus empathise with them.
