Fifth Year Report

This year we ran the show without any institutional funding though there was some left over from last years funding. About 75,000 rupees were raised through children’s fees. Grain worth Rs. 28,000 was given by the chilren’s parents. Rs. 42,000 were collected through sponsorships of children by friends. Arundhati Roy has given 1.5 lacs to Adharshila. We are thinking of using this amount to start our corpus fund.
