About The Event

The Swimming Club of Calcutta partnered with 3 local NGOs to host a community event for more than 90 children, including 30 girls from Apne Aap’s programs. Eight of the girls from the Kishori Mandal (Self Empowerment Groups for adolescent girls) of Apne Aap were even a part of the inauguration by performing a dance and by singing. The day included a variety of lively group activities, a cake ceremony, and plenty of free gifts for all the children in attendance. The festival provided an opportunity for children to gain exposure to other children outside of their village and form new friendships. #Rising4Justice #fun #togetherness #girlpower #ActionHeros #RedLightAreaRising
