On 25th, 26th & 27th October we celebrated the day with the orphan children of Vasundra Foundation Nagpur .The 75 girls between the age of 5 years to 15 years traveled to Mumbai for Mumbai Darshan. The girls were accompanied by the Teachers and President of the foundation ,it was their first visit Mumbai and they carried many happy memories.
Beti Bachao, Beti Padhao (Save girl child, educate a girl child) is a social campaign of the Government of India that aims to generate awareness and improve the efficiency of welfare services intended for girls. Under this scheme a NGO from Nagpur – Vasundhara Charitable Society had organized a trip ‘Dikshabhoomi to Chaityabhoomi’ for 75 orphan school girls of Nagpur. The route of this trip was from Dikshabhoomi Nagpur – Shegaon Sansthan – Mumbai Darshan – Aurangabad – Back to Nagpur. This trip was waved off by Mayor of Nagpur Mrs. Nanda Jichkar and Ex MPSC Member Mr. G D Jambhulkar.
