On the occasion of Interfaith Harmony Week, Sadbhawna Indore organised three different programmes in three different places.
The first programme was organised for Interfaith Harmony Week in the slums of Dewas Naka, where the women of the area gathered and were given information about small savings in daily life. The theme of the programme was “PEACE FOR ALL”. In this programme, the officer from State Bank of India, Mr R.C. Chuck, was invited. He gave information about small savings and how to manage petty expenses.
He said, “If we can think about saving little by little, then, our family income will increase and the economic condition will improve, along with the standard of living. As a result, the home environment will become peaceful.” Mrs Jamila Jaliwala, who was also present at the program, spoke about small savings. Creating a peaceful and calming environment, not just outside the house but also inside it, was our objective behind this programme.
The programme was presided over by Mrs Asha Khadiwala.Thanks were given by Mrs Vaishali Khare, and Mr Atul Karnik served as the anchor.
