 Success story

 

Rajesh is a seven year old child. His mother is a housemaid and was finding it difficult to meet the living expenses, so Rajesh was admitted to AnanyaTrust in October, 2006.

Rajesh likes to draw and very proudly shows his drawings of his version of millipedes and centipedes, of the birds he has seen to others. He likes to observe nature. Rajesh enjoys school; his mother says he looks forward to Mondays when he comes back to school after the weekend at home.
 
Rajesh's life has changed for better. Thanks to donors like you.

Donor speaks

 

Kirti Dhingra shares "I am really happy that my small contribution went such a long way in helping someone somewhere. I wished to make a difference to society and wanted to select a medium where I could choose the charity to which I could make a donation. GiveIndia provided me with such a platform.

It brought me great joy when I learnt that my small donation had played such a major role in changing the life of a young boy in Banaswadi, Bangalore."

Sponsor a child's education and make a difference!
