Parichay celebrated Republic Day with true community spirit embodying all the ideals and values that Parichay promotes. All of the preparations were done by the senior children at Parichay in order to foster a sense of responsibility and leadership and also to enhance their management skills.

Parichay involved the wider community in the celebrations and gathered around 50 people from the local community to attend the festivities and celebrate with Parichay.

Nearly all of Parichay's children were involved in the event, and a dance was performed by the special children. At the end of the celebrations there was a distribution of prizes to the children with sweets and treats.
