3) Children developmental and support infrastructure and activities at Deenabandhu children’s home.
4). Teacher support activities at Deenabandhu School, a creative space for learning.
HISTORY BEHIND THIS INITIATIVE
While Mr. Chandrashekar Desaigoudar was studying in America, at the Stanford University, he faced a dire financial problem. An anonymous donor gave him significant financial support together with a message that he need not return the money but may help others in need when he is able to earn substantially. This incident is the motivation force for Mr.Chandrashekar and today more than 1000 poor rural students are benefited from his kind support.
THERE IS NO BETTER WAY TO THANK GOD FOR YOUR SIGHT THAN BY GIVING A HELPING HAND TO SOMEONE IN THE DARK
