Children and Youth group of Atma Vignan Dada Bhagwan Foundation (AVDBF) will be spending a day with the elderly from various care homes, entertaining them and serving them with food and refreshments. Our motto is to bring a smile on their face and spread some joy.

Atma Vignan Dada Bhagwan Foundation (AVDBF) and its associated charitable trusts are spiritual non-profit organizations formed with the goal of spreading peace, harmony and ultimate bliss to the world through the science of Akram Vignan – the science of Self Realization as expounded by the Gnani Purush Shree Ambalal Muljibhai Patel, fondly known as Param Pujya Dadashri or Dada Bhagwan. Besides satsangs/gnanvidhi for adults, AVDBF is engaged in imparting moral values & character building for kids and youth all over the world through various activities, monthly magazine & periodic publications and website. –

On the 16th of October, we plan on bringing together the elderly from various care homes in our neighbourhood at our Centre in Ruislip.
Some of the care homes in our neighbourhood visiting us are: Brackenbridge Gold Care Home, Brook House, Preston Lodge Care Home, Whitby Dene Care Home, Santa Care Home and Sanctuary Supported Living.
The children along with the Youth group have arranged and practised various activities in pursuit of bringing joy and fun to the elderly folks.
ACTIVITIES:
1) Icebreakers- Let’s get to know each other
2) Singing and Dancing Performances
3) Games for everyone
4) Meals cooked and served by Kids
The FUNDAMENTAL ETHOS behind this Sewa are:
1) The kids have worked together on activities which teaches them to work in teams and to cooperate and coordinate with each other. It also teaches them organisation and planning skills which they can take with them for the rest of their lives.
2) Cooking meals for the elderly will teach them the basic art of cooking and everything that is needed around planning for it. It would also give them a sense of satisfaction when others enjoy the meal and they would understand how doing something for others can bring happiness.
3) Interacting with the elderly and spreading happiness to them will in turn show them how spreading joy returns joy. They would also develop the qualities of patience and compassion.
4) Last but not the least, the elderly would have a fun day with the children and hopefully visit our Centre on 6th November for Ankut , ‘Diwali Celebration’.
We are hoping the care homes visit our centre for future events and they too attain Self Realisation by the grace of the Gnani.

We will be using this opportunity to teach the public about Diwali and how to be a good Hindu. Diwali celebrates the triumphant victory of good over evil – and the glory of light over darkness, a beam of hope over despair. We aim to spread joy and make the sessions fun and interactive. We will also be collecting coats to help people in need.

City Hindus Network have their own Diwali Zone at Diwali in Trafalgar Square on Sunday 16th October. This also happens to be Sewa Day. We will be using this opportunity to teach the public about Diwali and how to be a good Hindu. Diwali celebrates the triumphant victory of good over evil – and the glory of light over darkness, a beam of hope over despair. We aim to spread joy and make the sessions fun and interactive. We will also be collecting coats to help people in need.

For more information and to get involved please email sewa@cityhindusnetwork.org.uk.

We believe #EveryDayIsSewaDay so although this falls on Sewa day we are organising a number of Sewa events for the year. Last year we had homeless feedings and organised a day trip for the children from LCT charity. This year we will be having homeless feedings, organising day trips for people in need, community and environmental projects. Our upcoming  projects include a homeless feeding for 500 people on Thursday 13th October and a large scale coat collection to be distributed at Christmas time.

The Haveli youth committee aims to conduct regular sewa events throughout the year in different forms. We hope that by taking part in Sewa day for the first time can encourage the youth to do regular sewa without even having to think about it. We aim to start with this initiative and then move on to do Sewa around the local Leicester community, charity homes and for the environment. Sewa is an essential part of Pushti Youth and integral in teaching the youth of today to carry this forward as a vital part of our daily lives.

As part of youth initiative for the temple we want to encourage new young members to understand and follow the concept of sewa.

Although NHSF Roehampton and NHSF LSBU are the main project hosts, this will be a collaborative project with other NHSF chapter universities across London.

We will each be making as many friendship bracelets as possible within our own universities, and finally having a representative from each chapter university to meet and visit the hospital(s) to deliver the bracelets.

There is no set Venue/Address. The project will be scattered across London Universities.

Comfortable clothes which you can move around in! If you have a wheely suitcase between 2-3 of you, it can be helpful to carry the items!
We will be going around people’s houses, shops, and halls to ask for small donations of tinned foods, rice, pasta and other food with a long shelf life. These will be donated to Exeter food bank.

The plan will be to meet at the University Campus to give out the Sewa Day T-shirts, and split everyone up to let them know which area they need to cover! We can have some lockers booked out at the University where people can come to leave the items they have collected, or alternatively come and give them to one of the Hindu Society committee members to take.

The items will then be delivered to the Exeter food donation bank, which can be found in some local supermarkets.
