#DaanUtsav 2016

Last year, the festival was embraced by people all across the country and its biggest achievement was that it made considerable headway in rural India. Just like during Diwali, Christmas or Id, one can’t keep count of the people who celebrated or the number of gifts or firecrackers that were bought, it is impossible to provide an accurate data set for #DaanUtsav as well. However, here are some rough estimates for the 2016 celebrations:

  • 6 million+ people took part
  • 200+ cities & towns participated, Daan Utsav reached rural India too
  • 1,500+ events were organised and comprised volunteering, donation, awareness, fundraising, and material collection activities
  • 1,700+ schools, 450+ colleges participated
  • Over 1,000+ companies also participated
