    Likitha, who was unable to come to school after she hit puberty, was very fortunate that Reaching Hands found her school and decided to implement their 'Girls Glory programme.' This programme aims in building functional toilets for the girls in school. This step is deliberately taken to combat the social taboos associated with menstrual cycles. With the help of the organisation, there were two functional toilets built in the school premises and a few sessions on sex education really helped Likitha and others to come back to school. Likitha was more comfortable when she learnt that these toilets ...

    Rachel, a Cerebral Palsy child was very delicate and needed special care when she was brought in to Diya Foundation. But at that time, the organisation did not have all the facilities to provide special care, such as toilet training etc. That is when, Rachel's parents were very supportive and were committed to do anything to make sure there is not much trouble to the organisation. Rachel was in the organisation for a brief period, before she fell very sick and was admitted to the hospital. On her birthday, the doctors said she wouldn’t make it. So, Diya ...

    A Step Towards Making Bengaluru Green!

    - Navendu Rashmi and Mysore Ravi Nithin

    The emergence of marathons has been a game changer in the developmental sector. While running was earlier considered only an athletic event, in the recent years India has seen the birth of a new concept “Running to make a Difference.” Since its inception in 2008, the TCS World 10K Run has brought in visibility and funds to a large number of NGOs.

    Let's Have TCS W10K Bangalore Everyday!

    - Shreedhar, SPARSH Hospital

    It is always an amazing feeling to be participating in the TCS W10K Bangalore. This is the 3rd successive year I have participated in the 5.7KM Majja Run and believe me every year is a unique experience.

    Running midst thousands of enthusiastic sports loving people, being flagged off by International and Domestic celebrities, having people cheering you as you run past them, wearing colorful dresses with carefully chosen slogans, etc. gives you the extra kick and energy. It makes you feel much younger to whatever age group you belong to.

    Let us not forget, we are all running for a cause - to ...
