Celebrating Eid with Those In Need
Those In Need co-partnered with The Goodwill Tribe to host the event ‘Letter Earthlings - Happy Ramadan Cards’.

Those In Need has believed that each and every festival wasof utmost importance and India being a secular country needs more of such actsin order to educate our young minds from the beginning about our diversity. Withthat in mind, Those In Need wanted to focus on the written emotions andexpressions which stay with people throughout their lives, with Ramadan beingthe topic this time.

Around 300+children from Pehchaan – The Street School joined Those In Need team for theevent. Everyone gathered at the school near Indraprastha Metro Station ataround 3pm. Amidst laughter and curiosity, the team discussedwith the children about the significance of Ramadan and how it is celebrated.Saloni, a student of the Pehchaan school said, “Ramadan mein hum ek mahine takfast karte hain, mithai khaate hain, sabki madad karte hain aur ache kaam kartehain”( Ramadan is a month long period where we fast till evening, eat sweets,help everyone and do good deeds). The required stationery was distributed amongthe children for them to make Ramadan cards which resulted in more than 100beautiful cards. This was an enriching experience for all who were a part ofit. Akash, the founder of Pehchaan School said, “Since the starting we haveseen how these children were taught to discriminate people on the basis ofcaste, with this event we tried to break that mindset & teach them themessage of love & equality”. Tanaaya, a volunteer of Those In Need added,”It was such an informative event for the children and even for us”.
Moreover, onthe 15th of June, the letters will be distributed at Jama Masjid by Those InNeed team and they also invite people volunteering to distribute these letterswith them.
