Mangaluru: “I am tying a Rakhi on you, like the one on mighty demon king Bali. Be firm, O Rakhi, do not falter” “May all be happy, May all be free from ills, May all behold only the good, May none be in distress.”- Family in Indian culture and history has always been of great priority and significance. Festivals that highlight this auspicious bond are celebrated throughout the year. One such festival is” Raksha Bandhan” which is celebrated on Poornima or full moon of the month of Shraavana in the Hindu calendar.

It celebrates the bond between a brother and a sister and has proven to not limit itself to blood siblings, but cousins trusted neighbours and friends also. On this day, the sister ties a band around her brother’s wrist and in return, her brother presents her with a gift and the promise of protection. By showing their affection for one another in a traditional manner, the ceremony of Raksha Bandhan has strengthened the bond between brothers and sisters across the country.

The tradition of Raksha Bandhan is age-old- and for that matter, the special adults and children of “SPERANZA FOUNDATION” in the City have made handmade Rakhis and other suitable items for Raksha Bandhan, which this year falls on Thursday, 11 August. Speranza Foundation works with the rehabilitation of children and adults with communication difficulties.

SPERANZA means HOPE, started in the year 2012, with an aim of providing rehabilitation for all sorts of communication problems, among children and adults. Speranza is a complete rehabilitation centre that provides services such as speech and language therapy, Behavioral therapy, School training and Sensory Enhancement.

Speranza Foundation through Speranza Educational Program trains children with autism, down syndrome, intellectual disabilities, physical disabilities etc.

On 08 August 2022 Speranza Foundation organised the Raksha Bandhan Exhibition in front of Ather Showroom, Kadri Road, Mangaluru. This event showcased various kinds of rakhis and different art items like wall hangings, simple sculptures using the mould, lippan art etc. made by children with special needs. The Exhibition thus also focussed on making these special children sell their own items in order to inculcate the understanding of being independent and learning money concepts, billing, socialising with customers and so on.

“Overall, the exhibition was successful as there were more than 250 items which were sold. Also, it was encouraging to see people extending their support towards this cause by buying rakhis and souvenirs. This immense support from people inspires Speranza Foundation and the special children to continue hosting such events in future. We seek the support of the public in our future projects, thereby making a difference in the lives of these special adults and children” said Dr Ramandeep Kaur-the Director and Manish Anand-Managing Director of Speranza Foundation.
