Umang Foundation, a NGO from Mulund organised Republic Day celebrations for the deprived children from Kalyan. The celebrations took place at Thane's St John Baptist Special School. More than 100 children, comprising orphans, children of single parents, slum and streetchildren were part of the celebrations.

Activities included dance competitions, magic show, drawing competition, fancy dress competition, interactive games and quiz for children. "Our organisation has been working for the welfare of children. Children are the future of our society and we try to give them our best through various activities," said Ashish Goyal, founder, Umang Foundation.

"These children are mainly children nurtured by single-par
ents, orphans or streetchildren who don't get facilities and are deprived of their childhood," he added. Umang Foundation comprises professionals from IT and banking. This was the 136th activity organised by the organisation in the past one-and-a-half years.
