Vijayadashami at 10, Hospital Lane, Kalmunai









Vijayadashami, is one of the most important Hindu festivals celebrated in Srilanka. The day marks the victory of Goddess Durga over the demon. The Goddess fought with evils for nine nights and ten days. The name Vijayadashami is also derived from the Sanskrit words “Vijaya-dashami”, literally meaning the victory on the dashami (Dashmi being the tenth lunar day of the Hindu calendar month). The Ayudha Pooja ritual is also on Vijayadashami where the equipments and gears are kept for puja.
The staffs at Rose Charities Srilanka, Rose Lanka Microcredit and Rose Medicare have celebrated the day with joy.

Children are formally introduced to literacy. The word “Vidyarambam” is derived from the Sanskrit language which means “the beginning of literacy”. The tenth and final day of the Navaratri is is considered auspicious for beginning learning in any field.

The ceremony of Vidyarambham (Vidya means “knowledge”, arambham means “beginning’) for children is held in schools, temples and in houses. It is common practice and today took place at the Domino’s Preschool. Two Kids were initiated into learning by Mr.Ngarajah, a well respected former Principal.

Smiles Uganda Fundraiser – For the Children of Uganda ” The more fun you have here, the more Smiles you’ll give there”


**Rose Charities Canada would like to invite you to our annual Smiles Uganda fundraiser!**

This year it will be held on Saturday, September 13, 2014, at the False Creek Yacht Club located at 1661 Granville Street, Vancouver BC.

Each year this event is organized to support 53 impoverished children in Kampala, Uganda. Smiles Uganda provides school fees to allow these children access to education they would not have otherwise. Over the last five years, the Smiles Uganda initiative has raised over $50,000 for school fees and we are VERY proud to share that our first graduate, Amos Alwa, has enrolled in Kyambogo University specializing in civil engineering! This would not be possible without your support! He is an amazing example of what we can do to change lives, just by having fun!

Smiles Uganda is run entirely by volunteers, so your donations go directly to benefit these incredibly worthy kids!

This years’ fundraiser promises to be the best one yet! We will be hosting it at the False Creek Yacht Club – beautiful views and sunset so come early and stay late! This year we will feature a live African musician, a top DJ from Republic night club, silent auction items, lots of hors d’oeuvres, and cheap drinks. Tickets are only $50!

If you find it difficult to attend this event, you can still help these kids by donating funds on line and/or contacting us to donate an item or service to our silent auction. We greatly appreciate all donations and auction items and make sure corporate sponsors are recognized for their support. As a registered Canadian Charity we also provide Canadian Charitable Tax Receipts.

You can buy tickets or donate via the website below:
