Daan Utsav

2nd  to 8th  October

About Daan Utsav

DaanUtsav, formerly The Joy of Giving Week is a 100% volunteer driven initiative started in 2009, which encourages people to do any act of giving of their choice between Oct 2-8, across the country. The idea is to get everyone to participate and experience giving.
Daan Utsav is a great platform that brings together people from all walks of life and encourages them to celebrate "Giving" – time, money, material, skill or just love.
This festival is like Diwali, Id, or Christmas, except it celebrates "Giving" across all religions, castes, and social strata.

Volunteer Services Organization (VSO), a social unit of MAHE with more than 5000 registered volunteers salutes Gandhiji's act of giving by participating in DaanUtsav by launching various community projects which are aimed to spread smiles by touching the life of others in Manipal, Udupi and Mangalore.
