Project JAGRITI has been supported by Jas Bhagati Foundation from 2010. Jas Bhagati has also supported some students for completing their Class X and XII exams and Teachers Training.
An NGO which conducts theatre workshops for children from weaker sections of society, UMANG partnered with ANAWA in 1997 and has been doing theatre workshops with ANKUR students since then. The workshops were initiated in the month of May (mid-may) as a way for keeping students occupied during the vacation period when they would disappear to the village and not return till August only to disappear in Sept/ Oct once again. A three-week workshop would end in June beginning, leaving 3 weeks for the summer break.
Angela and Peter Lawrence run this NGO. They have partnered ANAWA since 1997 and helped in raising funds in kind in the form of Books and Stationery and gifts and sweets during festivals, for distribution to the students. For many years they held “Bal Melas” on 14 November where students from other such NGOs also participated and organised competitions between NGOs and generally fun times of playing games, dancing, eating and take-home gifts, all sponsored by various corporates. Their association continues to date.
This was a German Foundation who was a big support in the initial years when ANAWA felt it was necessary to provide nutrition to the mal-nourished students in its care. The organisation provided our students a glass of milk and some multivitamins on a daily basis for many years.
CASA has partnered with ANAWA for more than 15 years, donating 100 blankets every winter for distribution to the underprivileged. These are normally distributed to students who are new admissions, so as to avoid repetition.
