“Flight of Fantasy” is one of BRT 53’s flagship charitable event. It comprises of taking 40 to 50 children from impoverished background for a one day event. In previous years we have taken children to Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam, New Delhi & Kolkata with support from the tables of the touring cities.

“The 40 children, who have taken the flight to Vizag today will undertake a city tour there and fly back to Bhubaneswar tomorrow (19th April) morning. These children, being flown by Indigo Airlines to Vizag, where Vizag Round Table 77 our local partner & a table like us, have planned a tour of the local amusement park, kids zone & a 3D movie show in a shopping mall, meal at Mc Donald’s with an overnight stay & fly back the next morning. Our endeavor is to give these underprivileged children, the experience of their lives, which not only gives them happiness & joy but more importantly an event which can act as a catalyst of hope for their future, to ingrain the idea of IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING in their young minds, in other words we are trying to give wings to their dreams,” said a press release by RAWA Academy.
