Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

This festival aims to facilitate networking and sharing of teaching techniques among middle school teachers in the area. The festival also has several interactive corners and film screenings designed for middle school childen roughly in the age group of 10 years to 14 years. Special attention is being paid to attract under-privilaged childen who normally do not get a chance to participate in such events.
