 Success storyhr
Bharathi, a seven-year-old child joined Ananya in 2008. Her father works at a construction site and mother is a maidservant. The parents were finding it difficult to send the child to school or pay attention to her education; as a result she stayed at home taking care of her four-year-old brother and playing with dolls.
In the two months that Bharathi has been at Ananya Trust, she is enjoying the vast space, the open classrooms and the friendly environment. She is showing eagerness in participating in the activities in class, in the day-to-day chores at Ananya and has even made a few friends.
Bharathi's life has changed for better. Thanks to donors like you.


Donor speaks

ssb2Sudheer Basargekar, Payroll Giver from Thermax Limited shares:
I was quite happy to get feedback on how my donation was utilized. I was glad to note that four families will be living a healthier and happier life as a result of cleaner homes.

[Sudheer Basargekar donated smokeless stoves to 4 families]
I came in contact with Give India as a part of the Social Initiatives our company is engaged with and was convinced that I can participate in social work though the payroll giving program and help needy people with full confidence that the money will be used for the cause mentioned . I am sure my continued participation will help many more
people and make their lives happy"
