I donated Rs 2 Laksfor the SAvidya upsamiti ( see "Ashanet .org SAVIDYA" and started to adopt one school (GPS) for support in 2005-6. We provided Uniforms to children, extra teachers , games and sports material, Computers, Light/electricity in the school, one class room per class, learning and science resource Center with 2400 books and >250 experiments. This we are trying to make as a Model school. The schools Library books are being rotated in alll the 7 adopted schools in Champawat, Uttarakhand ,India.
