Every year, we at Aashayein Foundation, Mysore strive to make a difference and help underprivileged children have a few moments of pride and joy by organizing “Kaamanabillu”.
About 150 children from 12 odd support homes gave us the much needed support and their never dying enthusiasm propelled us through the streets of Mysore on a bright but not so hot and humid Sunday morning. The very kind and humble Mr. Basavaraj Malagatti, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Mysore gave the Walkathon a start.
After an hours walk we were back at the Ideal Jawa Rotary High School and the cultural extravaganza began. All of us were left nothing but gasping at the energy levels of the children even after the walk. Unbelievable performances were put up and our hands turned sore, applauding them. A cooperative team of doctors from JSS Hospital performed Medical and Dental Check-ups for the children.
Every support home has its own requirements. As part of Kaamanabillu 2013, we made a pledge to donate to the support homes. The requirements were collected and the donations were made later on the same day.
