With a zeal to create a Little India within London, enthusiastic members of IIW have been organizing an event on Republic Day, since the last 6 years, focused on instilling those values of patriotism in future generation. Each year it has been growing bigger. IIW provide space to women entrepreneurs to sell their products and connect with new customers. This is an initiative to instil love for the Motherland amongst Indian diaspora in the UK.  

Its an opportunity for British Indian Kids to express their love for India to recreate the magic of Republic Day celebrations in Indian Schools.
