The events at PYSSUM aim at bringing exposure to our angels, young or adults, about the various situations in social life. Every event is organised keeping in the "How to live Principles" given by Paramahansa Yogananda. A team of experts, including dedicated Incharge and Special Educators, are allocated to an event. A thorough planning goes into organising an event keeping in mind the set of special need individuals involved in it. The entire year is divided into several sets of social, cultural or developmental training activities as per the needs of participants. Birthdays, Outstation Competitions and In-house activities are the outcomes of the micro and macro level planning by the functionaries. Anand Utsav, the festival of joy is the epitome of all the efforts that go into into the training of people with special needs at PYSSUM."
