Abhisar Foundation had planned a Fun-packed day for these special stars. When the children arrived, they were given T-shirts for the Sports Activities. There were different types of fun and physical activities identified according to the age. The small children were given more fun and easy activities whereas older children more than 18 were given tougher physical task to do. All the Children thoroughly enjoyed all the activities. Now was the time for dance. Most of the kids danced on popular numbers like zingaat, hukka bar..Rohit Sawant who was dancing with the kids is a child with mental retardation , yet he is an International Zumba trainer. Kids just loved it. The Chief guest for the event acknowledged the belief in ability or strength based approach and appreciated the efforts by parents and the school committee in organising this event.
