Heart Festival!

We had a great time at the Heart Festival this week! The first day was Gandhi Jayanti so both the ashram and Manav Sadhna were packed in celebration. Along with our bottles, stands, and installation on display, our Paryavaran Mitra stall featured two of our artists demonstrating how they design and paint the bottles for Gift of Change. New for the exhibition, the girls painted recycled pots made from old plastic jugs and metal bins. It was a blast to have visitors and everyone from Manav Sadhna gathered for a couple of days to celebrate arts and crafts made by children and other NGOs, to see some great performances, and to enjoy delicious food made by Divaben, Ramilaben, Kamlaben, and Juanitaben. It was also especially fun to have some of the schools Ben and I have been working with there to visit the exhibition, perform, and sell their own products! Thanks to Maheshbhai and everyone that helped make the event such a success!
