Kshitij – Youth of Baroda Celebrating kite festival with the specially challenged & physically disabled children 
The Government of India in 1984 declared to observe the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda as National Youth Day which is observed all over India. Educational Institutions celebrate the day on 12th January every year in various ways. KSHITIJ is a social initiative by United Way of Baroda for the differently abled children of Baroda & the youth of Baroda to come together and celebrate the combination of two festivals – Uttarayan & National Youth Day. UWB ensures that on this special day of fun, energy and excitement these special children should not feel neglected hence KSHITIJ is celebrated to make these children enjoy the festival to the fullest so that they are not deprived of the overall fun & excitement of kite flying due to their disability.
A total of 400 Differently Abled children from 27 NGOs of Baroda participated in this event and about 100 youth volunteers supported KSHITIJ. The youth of Baroda made the day enjoyable for the Differently Abled children and had the satisfaction of bringing happiness in the lives of the children.
