At Nazareth Academy Gaya, a heartwarming event unfolded. The Nazareth Old Students Association (NOSA) of Gaya orchestrated a festive fundraiser with deep purpose—to aid the underprivileged, integral to the academy’s wider community.
The grounds were transformed by 42 vibrant stalls, each a treasure trove of delights. Gastronomic pleasures, literary finds, playful games, and a merry-go-round created a tableau of joy for children and adults alike. The “Sisters Stall” at the entrance, helmed by the EPDO along with Sisters Rena and Vandana from Gurgaon, offered a tantalizing mix of momos, cupcakes, and plants, each purchase contributing to ecological stewardship.
More than a marketplace, this stall served as a beacon of learning and inspiration, promoting a symbiotic relationship with nature for all visitors. The fundraiser stood as a celebration of Nazareth Academy’s community spirit, with every member contributing to this charitable cause.
The event brimmed with an outpouring of enthusiasm, resources, and space, allowing the usual pace of life to thrive alongside a surge of creativity. Laughter and merriment echoed as students, their families, and alumni indulged in the festivities.
A poignant highlight was the inclusion of financially disadvantaged children from the Academy’s remedial classes, each receiving a token to revel in the festivities.
