The Candle Project is a NGO catering to underprivileged kids in Mumbai. We are a family of sixty odd volunteers who look over the complete holistic development of over a hundred kids; this is no mere feat. This is precisely why we call ourselves “Superheroes”; complete with the mystical powers (just not the cape; it’s quite cumbersome).
Just like Clark Kent, we do have regular jobs during the week. However, as the weekend approaches, the inner Superhero emerges. Like a butterfly emerging from a cocoon. And we don’t want to boast or anything, but the transformation is mind-boggling. You would have never realized how creative a lawyer could be until you see her design a Monopoly game to teach grammar to the kids,how amusing and full of life a chartered accountant can be, or the endless variety of games that a pharmacist can come up with. We all gather every weekend with the sole purpose of lighting up every young face with joy. And the satisfaction of doing just that is immense.
For that very purpose, we are fundraising. Christmas is right around the corner, and all our kids want a Santa Claus; sit in his lap and whisper what they desire in his ear. We aim to fulfil all their desires and see their faces light up like a Christmas tree, light up like the hundreds of candles in the church.
This Christmas, come help us put a smile on a child’s face. This Christmas, become a Santa Claus and let the kids whisper sweet nothings in your ear. This Christmas, be that candle which brightens their life.
