Twice every year the Guild conducts mass marriages thus enabling an underprivileged couple to enter into wedlock in an expense-free, dowry-free ceremony.
This year 30 couples were married at a mass marriage ceremony sponsored by FIIT JEE. The ceremony held within COVID protocols was held at MA Dham the sylvan green and peaceful surroundings of the shelter home run by the Guild.
30 couples were given a kick start in life with the basic essentials ( including a mobile phone in today's world of instant connectivity)
But more importantly, The Guild supported by the members and sponsors made a conscious attempt to break the stereotype of marginalizing widows during marriage ceremonies and declaring them "inauspicious" The young and old widows, fondly called MAs by us were not just witnesses but active participants in the ceremonies, from drawing the rangoli to making the garlands.
Another milestone for the Guild
