Activities at Harmony House

12th Aug 2010 - Teej Celebrations - Harmony House celebrated the popular Indian festival of Teej which is a Hindu tradition that embraces the arrival of the monsoon rains after the long drawn out draught of the summer. The celebrations which was organised by our staff included dancing, singing, having fun with henna and children were given colourful clothes.

15th Aug 2010 - Independence Day celebrations sponsored and organized by Gurgaon Millennium City Round Table - Independence day was celebrated across India on 15th Aug and this was no exception at Harmony House. Our children displayed their national pride by taking part in the raising of the Indian flag and singing the National Anthem followed by a yummy feast of bananas, samosas, ice cream and sweets. As a wonderful surprise the organizers, GMCRT showered our little ones with gifts including puzzles, dolls and art equipment and they were even given Indian sweets to take home to their parents.

We would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to the team at GMCRT for taking the time to organise and fund such a fabulous day that meant the world to our children.
