A visit to Manavya

This sunday our group of 15 cadets visited Manavya: Gokul. It is a home for HIV afflicted children. It was started by Late Smt. Vijaytai Lawate in 1997. It provides housing, nutrition, education, medical care and treatment to numerous such children. Their current strength is of 52 children of all ages between 4 years to 18 years. They run a school upto 8th Standard, after which the student appear for exams through National Open School. Manavya's staff is caring and loving and encourages them to live a normal life. We played with the children, heard them sing, and saw their classrooms and hostel. The children were looking mostly healthy and playful. We wish, that this exemplary institution continues it's work with such grace and perfection for a long time. You can learn more about them here
