We are back with the Edition 5 of A Day On Ginny's Planet with the theme "Let's Learn & Grow with Diversity: Food for Soul". It is going to be about accepting diversity, challenging the idea of perfections, and having fun while we do all this.

Moving Beyond Being Different!

We believe in creating an inclusive and empathic world, where diversity
is respected in all its forms. A world where being yourself is not just a campaign but is more like a way of life!
A Day on Ginny’s Planet is an event where everyone could experience such a world!

Meet Ginny on Ginny's Planet!

Why ‘A day on Ginny’s Planet’? 

Since we began in 2019, we have been on a rollercoaster ride! It is exciting, challenging, has its ups and downs. Most of all, it is meaningful and fun only when people like you join us on the ride!

Till now, we have reached 3000+ people, done 180+ workshops with people across age groups, partnered with 13+ social enterprises, and offered free/sponsored as well as revenue generating services and products. We have launched 10 different kinds of workshop series and continue to design more!

We are committed to providing inclusive services. This requires availability of resources like tactile books/games, and people such as sign language interpreters, and so on. It is tough to cover the costs for these without charging a high amount from users. To cover such costs while offering affordable and inclusive services and spaces, we have launched this fundraiser event: A day on Ginny’s Planet!

When you book a spot, you help us raise funds! At the same time, you experience a flavour of a diversity respective world!
