A very heartening feature of donations received through Give India is the fact  that all but a very few are donations in small lots from well meaning  benefactors who are obviously impressed by the effort of Adarsh towards amelioration of the lot of children with challenges . Spreading awareness about the problem of disability in children, its magnitude and the various methods in which NGOs engaged in the field can be helped  is a very important aim of Adarsh and,  therefore, the role of Give India in this respect Adarsh values very greatly . Through frequent communications and even physical checks, they have helped Adarsh to update and correct their procedures to ensure greater degree of transparency  and thus Give India has been also a  guide and  morale booster for Adarsh.

These  teams visit about 8 children a day at their homes and attend to their therapy and educational  needs.  To provide  such a team , it costs Adarsh about Rs 4. 5 lakhs a year  and for over  2years BPCL has been supporting Adarsh for 2 such teams , set up under  this project. This has been a very timely help which has  helped  Adarsh to help about 75-80 children .per month.  And but for BPCL’s help it would not have been  possible to maintain this  service. In fact, the example set by BPCL has enthused others to follow their lead and now Adarsh has 4 such teams . So  far , BPCL’s financial help has totaled Rs 18 Lakhs

Conclusion
Given above is only a list of donors who have contributed more than Rs 10,00,000/  to Adarsh. In addition, there are ever so many others who have contributed less amounts. Adarsh is  no less beholden to them .It is only the lack of space in a brief brochure like this that militates against their names being  mentioned individually. Adarsh will always remember their help , as ,for 55% of its needs for running its 2 Rehabilitation Centres and for  projects which are running at any time, Adarsh depends entirely on such donations.
