{Update} on Vaidehi Ashram Fund Distribution [March 2015]

It has been quite sometime that I posted an update on Vaidehi Ashram. Life in general got extremely busy (read as chaotic), pushing everything else into the back burner. Honestly though, there has been not a single day when I don't think of these kids at the ashram. Now, thanks to my mother, I could coordinate and disburse about 50,000 Rupees for their monthly groceries. The ashram currently is giving shelter and a chance to lead a better life for about 120+ girls (from ages 3 to 21 years) and providing 3 square meals a day is a necessity. A big thanks to the generosity of these awesome people out there and the trust they have in me to help out these kids. The remaining amount (~ Rs 50,000) is being planned to spend as their monthly schools fees in the month of May 2015.

All the photographs used in the post have been taken by my mother using her phone. I think she did a hell of a good job capturing the true essence of the visit. Bonus: My driver took a video too. Check it out at the end of this post. :-)

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who came forward to help these kids at the ashram.

the check for Rs 51,609 spent for the groceries. 
As you can see in the below pictures, their grocery list includes everyday basic items such as tea, soap, detergent, oil, tamarind, rice, sugar, onions etc. Did you know that for these kids, as extra helping of dal or rice is a luxury! Everyone (even the three year old) eat by themselves, wash their plates once done and neatly stack them in a corner shelf of their dining hall. 

One thing I learnt from my visits to Vaidehi Ashram is - humility and the strength to experience Life as it comes. May God bless these precious girls with lots of love and laughter. :-)

** Thank YOU all for making this happen! **
