Tihar, also known as the festival of light is celebrated with much fanfare and enthusiasm here at the Center for Children with Intellectual Disabilities. Tihar, the second biggest festival after Dashain is celebrated in the month of Kartik for five days. They love to celebrate every festival as it keeps them active and helps to know the culture.
How do we Celebrate the Festival?
The children dressed up in ethnic costumes and performed dances with the teachers, staff and our volunteers. They participated in “Deusi Bhailo” and sang many songs. Hence, the children had lots of fun. They also enjoyed eating fruit and sweets. An earthen lamp was lightened up at the main door of the center. This is a part of the tradition. The joy on the faces of the children is a sight to see. Festivals like this bring out the best in them and give them confidence.
Life won’t be as easy and fun for the children with intellectual and physical disabilities if there wasn’t the CCID school to support as they are neglected by the family and society. We accepted the challenge to care and educate them in the difficult circumstances in association with Volunteer Society Nepal.
Join us this festival season to celebrate the festival of lights with the children from the Center for Children with Intellectual Disabilities.
