The guests were really happy to see the talent of children and also praised the initiatives taken by Chetanalaya in the area. The program was attended and appreciated by the community members, particularly, women and children.
The Awards Ceremony motivated other children and their parents to perform well and work as an active member of their NCPs and CPCs so that the next year they are also felicitated for their initiatives and hard work. The groups have particularly done a lot of work with the drop out children and motivated them and their families towards education.
