Diwali “festival of lights“
l celebrated in autumn every year. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. The festival preparations and rituals typically extend over a five day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartik. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali night falls between mid-October and mid-November.
The association aims to enhance community well-being in the west-centre area of Ottawa by providing financial support for children and youth from low-income households to participate in recreational programs at the Plant Recreation Centre and Plouffe Park. Additionally, we operate and supervise skating rinks at Plouffe Park, offer structured drop-in programming for youth aged 6-16 with educational and recreational activities, and contribute to community well-being by maintaining and preserving recreational spaces for general public use.
