Sub-project:
Kendrapara School for the Blind & Kendrapara School for the Mentally Retarded

Odisha, India

Grassroots Asia initiated a Rotary International matching grant with the Kendrapara Rotary in Orissa and the Snowmass Village Rotary in Colorado when we found 70 children in dire need of food, furnishings, clothing, educational materials and construction. The grant added sanitation, beds and other furnishings to the two schools. This solid infrastructure helps to insure the basic supplies needed for the children's continued care. Educational supplies are contributed upon occasion. Grassroots Asia also visits these two schools to bring occasional fruit (a big treat) and love. It was unfortunate that we found the Kendrapara Rotary less than ethical in its dealings and we have discontinued all relations with this Rotary Club.
