Our very first project aimed at getting 100 laborers from across Dubai for an weekend experience of their lifetime. They got a chance to visit 'At The Top' Burj Khalifa followed by a buffet lunch at 'The Walk' JBR. The day ended with a private movie screening at VOX. The project was carried in Dubai and had 100+ laborers from different job fields, from construction to cleaning were offered a weekend experience they never would have never dreamt of. The event was held on 5th Feb, 2016 and was duly supported by various volunteers throughout the day. The project was privately funded without any corporate sponsorship. 'Pilot' is one of the many upcoming events that have been tailored towards the mission of the project.
Diwali 2016, we celebrated the festival of lights with a few camps, a home to around 2,000 laborers across the area. The camps were lit up with lights & decorations to give the laborers a homely experience of the festival. The idea of the event was to give a movement true happiness on the faces of these laborers after a long stressful day at work. With boxes of sweets and new clothes, the event was bagged with many games & exciting gifts to their surprise.

The event was organised by the Dubai-based Desert Group, the region’s leading horticulture and landscape firm, in collaboration with Pink Mango Project. The idea behind the initiative was merely to spread some smiles across the kids, getting to plant their own sapling for the vert first time.
