Edufest 2009 saw a crowd of over 200 children from homes all over Mumbai, Thane and Gujarat participating in the 2 day event. The theme this year was ‘Path to Excellence’. The theme was chosen in order to educate the children about the importance of internal excellence in terms of their inherent qualities, strengths, positivity as well as factors which cause fear, shyness and anger control.

External excellence was also dealt with by teaching the children to dream and have a vision or objective, how to inspire and motivate themselves and finally how to set goals and achieve them.



It provided a platform for the children to showcase their hidden talents. The event saw the success stories of Edufest 2008 further unfold as the shy young girl who admitted to a lack of confidence, came forward yet again, but this time to thank Udaan for helping to achieve better scores in her 10th standard exams.
