Anjali International

Children and Youth Festival.

Anjali Asserts SAY YES TO ALL CHILDREN.

Anjali is India’s first and only international children’s festival which aims to bridge gaps for making the society more inclusive and restore fun-filled childhood by showcasing the potential of children with disabilities to mainstream society.

We endeavour to burn bridges by enabling children, disabled or non-disabled children, from all backgrounds and walks of life to discover each other in five days camp. So, what's different about Anjali?
